Borneo Ferry Capsizes: People Missing

A number of people are missing after a ferry crashed into rocks and capsized in a remote river in Borneo.

District police chief Bakar Sibau said the vessel was believed to be carrying many more passengers than its recommended limit of 74.

He said there appeared to be dozens of survivors, many of whom swam ashore, although he could not give precise figures.
