The river is a magnet for bathers at this time of year. Thousands leap into the fast flow and let the river take them down towards the city centre every summer.

The man, named as Nour by his family, went for a swim on Sunday – and he hasn’t been seen since.

In addition to the police search – his relatives have been searching the river banks for clues. He was only wearing a swimming costume when he went missing.

He’s married with three young children.
