The Star (Kenya) - - News World -

At least 133 bod­ies had been re­cov­ered by yes­ter­day from a boat car­ry­ing hun­dreds of mi­grants that cap­sized off Egypt two days ear­lier, Egyp­tian of­fi­cials said. The boat sank off Burg Rashed, a coastal vil­lage on the Nile Delta. Res­cue work­ers and fish­er­men said they res­cued 169 peo­ple, but con­fu­sion re­mained over how many might still be miss­ing. Health min­istry spokesman Khaled Me­ga­hed said 133 bod­ies were re­trieved from the Mediter­ranean, while Be­heira gover­nor Mo­hamed Sul­tan said 148 had been re­cov­ered.
