Saudi navy rescues 30 Egyptian fishermen

Saudi naval forces on Sunday rescued 30 Egyptian fishermen from the Red Sea after their vessel succumbed to escalating waves and violent winds ten miles off the Saudi coast.

Saudi border guards sent one of their rescue units to tow the ship, named the Mohamed al-Duhsh, to safety.

The boat’s captain said he had left Suez four days ago to fish in the Red Sea. The boat however developed cracks in its sides and water began leaking into the cabin. The captain sent a rescue signal to Saudi naval forces who took immediate action.
