Around 40 tourists were rescued on Tuesday after a fire ripped through tourist boat "Blue Dolphin” in the Sahl Hasheesh area south of Hurghada، in the Red Sea Governorate.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of maritime rescue association and environmental protection in the Red Sea، Hassan Al-Tayeb، stated that the association received a distress call from Hurghada rescue reporting that the boat was sinking due to the fire that had broke out earlier.

Red Sea resorts are a key tourist attraction in Egypt. The sector has yet to recover from three years of political unrest that has sapped one of the economy's main sources of foreign currency.
