The Inevitable conclusion
Given that 1000 people died in the Ferry fiasco in what is the second deadly accident this company had in this past year, the relatives of the families have lost it and attacked the company's headquarters. Hundreds of relatives of passengers drowned on a Red Sea ferry trashed the offices of the owners Monday, throwing furniture into the street and burning the company's signboard. Riot police intervened and fired tear gas to restore order. Interestingly enough, I just saw this ad by the Ferry companyon today's newspaper's frontpage that stated that they will pay 150 thousand pounds for each to the families of the victims, which like, never happens. This is after Mubarak announced yesterday that the government will compensate each of the families with 30 thousand pounds for every dead victim, which is almost $5000 dollars. Given that the going rate for egyptian life was around $150 dollars before, I would say that's an improvment, no?
