Ferry Capsized with 1,400 lives feared dead

A ferry, named al-Salam, from Saudi Arabia to Egypt with more than 1,400 pessengers onboard sank in the Red Sea.

Dozens of bodies have been recovered from the sea, believed to be victims of the tragic incident.

Some survivors were found in lifeboats.

One question would immediately come to our mind: "Were there insufficient lifeboats onboard al-Salam?"

If this is so, then we are shocked that a ferry of such a carrying capacity could be approved to collect fares from her pessengersm but no sufficient safety precautions are taken. (alang bidara - 4/2/2006).
