Hundreds of people have gathered in Egypt's port of Safaga, desperate for news about their loved ones on a ferry that sank in the Red Sea.
The al-Salam Boccaccio '98 ferry with some 1,400 people on board sank during an overnight journey from Duba, Saudi Arabia, to Safaga.
Officials say nearly 200 bodies have been pulled from the water, but many of those in Safaga are fearing that the death toll will rise further.
Some held pictures of their relatives, hoping their loved ones would be among some 300 reported survivors.
Many others have accused officials of withholding information, saying they are being kept in a "complete blackout".
Riot police have been called in to prevent any possible violent protests.
Ambulances have been rushed into the town, amid reports that survivors and the dead will be brought to Safaga.
Some people have been simply overwhelmed by the sheer scale of the disaster.
