Two persons were killed and eight others are still missing after a truck plunged into the Nile River in Egypt.
The truck was traveling on an unauthorized ferry outside of Cairo when the disaster occurred.
At the river, rescue activities are continuing. A total of 14 people have been saved so far, according to reports in the local media.
On their way home from work, agricultural labourers were riding in the truck.
Parents reported that their children agreed with them.
Arrests have been made of the truck driver as well as three ferry personnel, while the search for the ferry’s owner continues.
Nile accidents are widespread and have been blamed primarily on a disregard for established restrictions.
