Dozens of Bodies Being Retrieved after Egypt Boat Tragedy

Friday, 23 September 2016 06:22 AM

ROSETTA, Egypt (AP) — Dozens of bodies, many decomposed, are being pulled out of the waters off the Egyptian coast three days after hundreds of migrants heading to Europe, drowned when their overcrowded boat capsized.

An Associated Press reporter in the Nile Delta city of Rosetta saw between 20 to 30 bodies early Friday morning brought in by fishing boats and delivered to a group of waiting ambulances.

The death toll from the incident is at least 70 and will likely rise, making it one of the deadliest incidents from the migrant trail across the Mediterranean. Many of the dead are women and children who were unable to swim away when the boat sank on Wednesday.
