Ferry capsizes in Bangladesh

The passenger ferry M.V. Pinak capsized in the Padma river in Munshiganj district, central Bangladesh, on Monday, Aug. 4, 2014. Hours later, dozens had survived by swimming ashore and two bodies were recovered in the water, but hundreds were believed to be trapped and feared dead as strong currents hampered rescue operations. It was unclear how many people were on board because ferry operators in Bangladesh rarely maintain passenger lists. Some survivors said the ferry was overloaded, with 250 to 300 passengers, but the figure could not be confirmed.
