A passenger cruiser carrying Muslim pilgrims from Egypt collided late Monday with another boat while sailing into a port at the southern entrance of the Suez Canal, police officials said. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity as they were unauthorized to speak to the media, said rescue boats were rushing to the site. No details were yet available on whether there were any casualties or damage to the passenger ship, which was carrying hundreds of pilgrims returning from a pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the officials said.
