DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania
At least 10 people are feared dead in a ferry accident in a lake in western Tanzania, police said Friday.
James Manyama, a local police officer, said strong winds forced the boat to capsize and sink in the Lake Tanganyika.
A total of 87 people have been rescued so far, he said.
Initial reports suggest 97 passengers were aboard the ferry.
The country's Met Office in mid-July warned of strong winds and high tides in the lake, which is among the deepest in the world.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
