AT LEAST 18 DEAD AS CARGO SHIP HITS EGYPT PARTY BOAT


CAIRO, Egypt - A cargo ship collided with a boat on the Nile carrying people celebrating an engagement, leaving at least 18 dead, Egyptian police said Thursday as divers searched for missing passengers.
The captain of the cargo boat and his assistants were arrested following the accident late Wednesday in the Warraq district north of Cairo, the authorities said.
A police general on the scene told AFP that 18 corpses had been retrieved. Police and medics had earlier said 21 people were killed.
Five survivors were plucked from the river but an unknown number were still missing, the police general said.
At least two children drowned, according to medical and security sources.
