Five Egyptians drown in Mediterranean Sea, 3 missing

Five illegal Egyptian migrants drowned on Saturday and three others went missing after their boat capsized off of Edko, Beheira governorate.
The boat carried 13 illegal Egyptian migrants and was heading to Italy.
The border guards rescued five people, recovered the bodies of the five people who perished in the Mediterranean Sea water and continue to look for the three remaining missing migrants.
The undocumented migrants were heading to Port Said to take a larger boat to Italy, but the small boat capsized amidst high waves.
