Egypt searches for ship

The Times "CAIRO - Egypt said it has launched a search to find a cargo ship that has gone missing in the Red Sea on its way to Sudan.
The 1,700-ton Badr 1 left the Egyptian port of Suez several days ago and was headed for Port Sudan with a 14-member crew made up of nine Egyptians, four Sudanese, and one Yemeni, the foreign ministry said in a statement.
Rescue ships have been sent along the Sudanese coast to search for the ship, it said, adding that Egypt also planned to send an aeroplane."
