Jordan and Egypt Boat Ferry Opens

Jordan and Egypt have begun regular boat shuttles between their leading Red Sea beach resorts in an attempt to win back tourists who have stayed away because of violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories and the war in Iraq.

The route links Aqaba, Jordan and Sharm el Sheikh. The 200 km/125 mile route along the coral rich Red Sea coast, is expected to attract more tourists, particularly Europeans and Arabs.

Passengers will pay $45 for a one-way ticket, which will operate on Sundays and Thursdays.

Congratulations to Ahmed & Mariam Adly on the birth of their baby boy Shady, weighing 4kg, 51cm in length and born on
