Egyptian authorities have reopened three ports on Friday which were closed the day before due to bad weather.

The Red Sea Ports Authority said the port of Nuweiba in South Sinai governorate has been reopened on Friday morning after it was closed by bad weather the day before.

Maritime activities and navigation have resumed after improved weather conditions and wind stability at the port, the ports authority said in a statement.

Egyptian authorities also reopened two major Mediterranean ports, Alexandria and Dekheila, after closure on Thursday for maritime safety reasons.
