Dead whale found on the North Coast



A dead whale was found on the North Coast near the Misr Development beach resort.
 
A joint committee of the Environment Ministry and the Alexandria Institute of Hydrobiology found fractures in the fins of the whale and said it could not be mummified because it was completely rotten.
 
The whale was buried in a pit 200 meters from the beach and covered with lime, while the analysis of the water found no traces of contamination.
