30 Egyptian Migrants Drown In Mediterranean

ALEXANDRIA, Egypt, July 29 (UPI) — Egyptian security forces said they found the bodies of 30 undocumented migrants floating in the Mediterranean Sea north of Alexandria.

The young men from the governorates of Kafr al-Sheik, Gharbiya, Damietta and Alexandria drowned in an attempt to emigrate from Egypt to Italy, al-Masry al-Youm reported Friday. They were aboard a fishing boat for a week before it sank, the report said.

Security officials arrested the vessel’s owner, who investigators said took $8,400 from each passenger and received a call from someone on board before the boat sank but didn’t alert authorities.
