It is being reported that a ship, which was carrying cargo as well as trucks, sank because the trucks were parked mainly on one side, which caused the ship to tilt and start sinking.
The cargo ship, named Taba sunk on Sunday in Egypt’s Red Sea, shortly after departing Safaga Port on its way to Saudi Arabia. Naval forces managed to save all 37 crew and passengers onboard the ship, a Red Sea Ports spokesman told state news agency MENA.
Abdel-Rehim Mostafa stated that the crew sent SOS signals to the naval base in Safaga port and rescue ships were immediately dispatched to help the stranded passengers and crew.
No one was injured.
