A small ferry believed to be carrying about three dozen people sank on Sunday as it crossed the Nile river in the southern province of Minya, drowning at least three people, police said. The ferry sank in Bani Hassan village, south of Cairo, as it traveled from the western shore of the Nile to the eastern bank, a police official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Minya province is 220 kilometers south of Cairo. Eyewitnesses said the ferry was carrying about 35 people.
