Three Arab states have promised to donate two ferries each to Egypt, nearly two months after an Egyptian ferry sank in the Red Sea leaving some 1 000 people dead. The six 70-million-dollar ferries shall operate in the Red Sea and be used primarily to transport Muslim pilgrims and Egyptian expatriates in the Gulf, Independent Online reported. Each of the ships, to be imported from Australia, has a capacity of around 1 500 passengers. (Source: Independent Online)
