At least 31 dead in ferry sinking in Bangladesh

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

More than 30 people died when a packed ferry sank in Bangladesh on Tuesday. Dozens more remain missing.

The ferry capsized after colliding with a cargo boat in the Meghna River about 30 kilometer south of the capital city of Dhaka.

The ferry is reported to have been carrying more than 200 passengers. Authorities say the death toll is likely to increase.
