Three Sailors Die When Fishing Boat Sinks

Thursday, February 22, 2001
Three Egyptian sailors died and four are missing at sea after their fishing boat sank in bad weather off the coast of Port Said, the state-owned Middle East News Agency (MENA) said. The deaths were the first casualties reported since Egypt closed five ports on the Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea on Tuesday because of bad weather. The Red Sea ports of Suez, al-Adabiyah and al-Zaytiyah were shut after wind speeds rose to 27 knots and waves reached 2.5 m. Authorities also closed the Mediterranean ports of Alexandria and Dekheila where wind speeds rose to 40 knots and waves reached 3.5 m. - (Reuters)
