Bangladesh ferry capsizes

Yahoo NewsMay 16, 2014

Rescuers have recovered at least 29 bodies a day after a ferry capsized in a river during a storm in central Bangladesh and police estimate at least 100 others were missing, officials said Friday.

Exactly how many people were on board wasn't clear because the ferry operators did not maintain a passenger list, a local administrator, Saiful Hasan, said.

A salvage ship failed to pull out the ferry as strong currents in the 18-meters- (60-feet-) deep water brought huge volumes of sand, which was covering the vessel. (AP)
