DHAKA, Bangladesh - A river ferry with about 250 passengers aboard capsized in eastern Bangladesh early Sunday, police said, and dozens of people were feared dead.
About 50 people swam to shore and rescuers have found eight bodies so far, a police official said on condition of anonymity.
The double-decker ferry went down in the Meghna River about 40 miles east of the capital, Dhaka.
Ferry accidents are common in this South Asian nation, which is crisscrossed by rivers.
