Egypt grounded 10 Israeli yachtsman taking part in an international regatta. The crew of two yachts from Israel left Tel Aviv last month as part of the Med-Red Rally, which runs through the Suez Canal to the Egyptian port of Sharm el-Sheik. But they were stopped in Suez this week after Egyptian authorities accused them of not obtaining proper registration papers. The yachtsmen said Monday they expected to clear the bureaucratic obstacle but voiced doubt that they could catch up with the other 50 vessels taking part in the regatta.
