Only 400 among 1, 401 passengers have been rescured in the disaster up to now. Victims' family are getting mad as they have no information about those. :cry:

The worst is that between the start of the fire and the flooding of the board several hours passed and noone cared to inform offically
passengers to get on the sefety jackets etc. The number of safety boats was also not enough.
So it seems to me the ones who were sleeping sunk. Others tried to rescue themselves even by putting on the safety jackets and trying to swim (temperature in Red Sea about 20 Celsjus centigrades at this time of the year).
But I read lot of dangerous creatures there too.
What even more tragic foreign help was rejected too:(
The world seems to be as mad as is it is only possible.
Different civilisations clash and everyone wants to be right. But nt everyone can be right of course.
So he is the right one in this all mess???
:roll: :roll: :roll:

I think money rules this world.
and I am very amused by comments of Polish journalist who stated with a mercy that in Egyptian catastophe the poorest of the poor died - the ones who had to emigrate to Saudi Arabia to earn for their living in Egypt. Who would think people in Polish TV could think up such a pitiful comment? Are they better? really?
They are much, much more pitiful I would say - but it is only my private opinion.
thanks for reading.
