Seven killed in Indonesia ferry accident

Seven people, including two children, were killed and four others missing after a ferry carrying dozens of passengers caught fire off Indonesia’s Sulawesi island early yesterday, police said.

The ferry, heading from Southeast Sulawesi to an island in Central Sulawesi, caught fire shortly after midnight. Police suspect the fire was triggered when the diesel tank exploded.

It was unclear how many people were aboard the vessel at the time. The passenger manifest listed 50 but rescuers and locals recovered 61 survivors while seven people, including two children aged two and four, were found dead.
