Cairo - A South African tourist has gone missing in Egypt, after a small boat sank in Egypt’s Upper Aswan due to bad weather.
eTurboNews reports that eight people were rescued in the incident - including five tourists and the boat crew comprising three Egyptians.
Egyptian security forces have launched a search for the missing tourist. The country is, however, expected to face increasingly inclement weather over the next few days, which could affect search operations.
Heavy rainfall is expected across the country on Thursday with floods in the Sinai Peninsula, the Red Sea mountain range and Upper Egypt.
