KINSHASA -- Rescuers searched yesterday for survivors of a capsized ferry in the Democratic Republic of Congo that left four confirmed dead and about 10 people reported missing.
"At least 80 people have been saved [but] four bodies were pulled out of the water," Lukolela district administrator Jean-Willy Atali told AFP.
Bad weather and overcrowding brought down the M/B Dady ferry, which was carrying about 100 passengers and goods on the River Congo, about 180 kilometres from Mbandaka, capital of Equateur province in the northwest of the country, Atali added. -- AFP
