UAE envoy thanks Egyptian authorities

Cairo: The UAE Ambassador to Egypt Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Dhaheri has extended thanks to the Egyptian authorities for the efforts made to recover body of the Emirati child who died in a tragic drowning accident when he fell into River Nile last Friday.

“The Egyptian (police) team spared no effort in search for the child’s body. We thank them for the efforts and for the facilities extended,” Al Dhaheri told today.

The body of the 6-year old Emirati boy Hamad Abdullah Al Ali was found today. The body will be transported to the UAE later this evening.

The boy fell into the water during a Nile cruise on Friday with his parents following rough waves that rocked the boat. The Egyptian frogmen began a massive search for the body which was found and recovered today.
