Rescuers recovered 53 bodies today from a migrant boat that capsized off the Egyptian coast, bringing the death toll from the disaster to at least 108, a health ministry official said.
"There have been 53 bodies recovered as of 11 am (0900 GMT) on Friday," said health ministry official Adel Khalifa.
A provincial official put the toll from the incident on Wednesday at 115. It was not immediately possible to explain the discrepancy between the two figures.
