Egypt recovers 87 dead bodies from storm-hit Libya

Egypt has recovered 87 bodies of Egyptians who died in Libya due to Storm Daniel, the Egyptian emigration ministry said on Wednesday.

The bodies were repatriated by the Egyptian military and were buried in their respective towns in Egypt, the ministry added.

Libya hosts a considerable number of the Egyptian diaspora, who usually cross the land border into its east, where most of the storm-hit areas are located.
