A cargo ship hit an oil platform in the southern Gulf of Suez, causing millions of dollars in damage to the rig but no casualties, a senior oil company official said Saturday. The platform is owned by Gulf Petroleum Co., or Gupco, a joint Egyptian-American venture with major operations in the gulf between mainland Egypt and Sinai. The Gupco official said the collision spilled a small amount of oil from the platform into the gulf. He said damage to the platform is expected to exceed $10 million.

Tugboats brought a Cunard luxury liner safely to shore in the resort of Sharm el Sheik after a collision with a coral reef ended a round-the-world cruise for the ship and 527 mostly American passengers. The Royal Viking Sun voyage was the second failed Cunard cruise for about 120 of the passengers, who had been aboard the MV Sagafjord in February when an engine room fire set it adrift in the South China Sea.
