Ferry capsized in Tanzania causing at least 86 victims

The Nyerere MV ferry crashed near the coast between the islands of Ukora and Bugolora. It is thought that the overloaded ship was overturned when the crowd on board moved on one side while he was anchoring.

So far, 100 people have been rescued, while 32 are in critical condition.

Ship droppings are frequent in Tanzania, as the ferries fill up more than the norm.
