Ship Capsizes In Kenya Causing Victims
The casualty toll of the capsized ship near Lamu Island in Kenya is of at least 8 dead and numerous people missing. The boat was overturned by the fury of the waves while it was heading to the mainland from Lamu Island, a world-famous tourist resort: the news was reported by police sources which said that 12 survivors have been rescued up to now.The survivors in turn reported that at the time of the sinking, there were nearly 50 people on board but as there is no passenger list, it is impossible to know the precise number or their nationality. During this period, Lamu Island is particularly crowded with foreign visitors attracted by the New Year's celebrations.
