11 people drowned at rocky beach in northern Egypt
Eleven people drowned off the coast of northern Egypt at a beach known for its rocky jetty and fast-moving waters.
Alexandria City's central tourism administration says, the tragedy unfolded at a beach in the Mediterranean city, when a young boy ran into the sea and began having difficulties.
When a man from the group jumped in to rescue him, he became caught in the waters, too. Maj. Gen. Jamal Rashad says, nine other people then entered the water to help, and they all died. It was not immediately clear if they were related.
Emergency teams recovered six bodies and were still searching for the rest late Friday.
