At least 100 people are known to have died after a ferry carrying hundreds of people capsized on Lake Victoria, Tanzania, officials say.
Many more are missing and it is feared that more than 200 people may have drowned. Rescue efforts resumed on Friday after being halted overnight.
The MV Nyerere ferry overturned near Ukara island on its way from Bugorora.
It is thought the overloaded vessel tipped over when crowds on board moved to one side as it docked.
Local media say the ferry’s official capacity was 100 people but officials say the vessel was carrying more than 400 passengers when it capsized. Read more
