At least 21 people have been killed in a crash between a cargo vessel and a passenger boat on Egypt's River Nile, security sources say. Families of a young couple hired the boat for an engagement party and were sailing north of Cairo when it was hit late on Wednesday, reports say. The interior ministry said the bodies of four babies had been recovered. Several passengers are still missing. It is not clear if the couple thought to be celebrating their engagement were among the casualties. Relatives of the dead and missing gathered on the banks of the river to await news of their loved ones.
