Egypt: Tourist boat capsizes in Red Sea

Thirty five people, including 26 tourists of different nationalities, were rescued Tuesday after their tourist boat capsized in the northern Red Sea, during a cruise to one of the local diving areas.

The victims were rescued by workers on another tourist boat sailing nearby, Al-Masry Al-Youm reports.

The tourists were transferred to a nearby marina, the Egyptian media adds. The sunken boat had three floors, and was returning from a diving trip in the famous Abu Nauhas area in the northern Red Sea.

Authorities have launched a probe into the incident to determine the causes.
