Nine dead in Egypt fishing trip capsize

Nine people drowned and at least four

were missing Tuesday after a boat chartered for a family fishing trip

capsized near Egypt’s second city Alexandria, a security source said.

State newspaper Al-Ahram said a six-month-old infant was among the family

members drowned in Lake Mariout, 20 kilometres (12 miles) west of Alexandria.

Six survivors are receiving treatment in local hospitals while emergency

teams have been sent to the lake to search for the missing, the security

source said.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the capsize.
