Jubilation as Egypt ferry owner sentenced  
 

The owner of a ferry that sank in the Red Sea in 2006 killing at least 1,000 people has been sentenced to seven years in jail for manslaughter.

The ruling by Egypt's appeals court overturned an earlier acquittal of Mamdouh Ismail, which prompted outrage from the victims' families.
