Fifteen bodies were pulled out of water after a ferryboat carrying 17 people sank in the Nile River in the Delta city of Kafr el Sheikh earlier Friday, a well-placed source said.
Two people were injured in the accident.
A mother and her three children were identified among the victims.
In press statements on Thursday, Kafr el-Sheikh Governor el Sayed Nasr said the ferry was transferring people between two towns in Kafr el Sheikh and Beheira governorates when the accident occurred.
