River ferry sinks in Bangladesh
A ferry has sunk in Bangladesh, with 82 people so far confirmed dead.
Police say the MV Maharaj had about 200 people on board when it sank late on Saturday. But according to witnesses the number was higher.
This is so typical in Bangladesh. Doesn't the government do anything to improve safety? These ferries are always overcrowded. I have seen the ferries last year. They are SO old and don't have any safety measures whatsoever.
