Red Sea bridge to be built linking Egypt and Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia and Egypt have announced a bridge is to be built across the Red Sea linking the two countries – as well as the continents of Africa and Asia. King Salman of Saudi hailed it as a “historic move” that would boost trade between the two allies after meeting Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Cairo. No estimate was given for the cost of the bridge, which is to be named after the Saudi king.
