Update 2 - Death Toll Exceeds 100 İn Tanzania Ferry Capsize

Around 40 people were rescued in Lake Victoria, says local authorities.

UPDATES DEAD TOLLBy Tufan Aktas KAMPALA, Uganda (AA) – The death toll of the capsize of a passenger ferry in Tanzania's Lake Victoria has risen to more than 100, according to local media on Friday. The ferry MV Nyerere was traveling between Ukara and Bugolora and capsized near the Tanzanian city of Mwanza on Thursday night, according to local media. Mwanza regional commissioner John Mongella said that around 40 people had been rescued and search and rescue works were ongoing. Noting the death toll would likely rise, Mongella said the number of people on board was not known. Overcrowded and neglected ferries often cause such accidents in the region. -
