Cairo (AFP) - At least 10 people drowned when a boat carrying migrants capsized off the Egyptian coast on Wednesday, with rescue teams saving at least 150 passengers, officials said.

Search teams were looking for more survivors from the incident which took place off the Mediterranean port city of Rosetta, two police officials said.

"There are 10 dead and three injured," health ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed told AFP.
