Seven die, 60 missing as ship sinks off Indonesia

At least seven people have died and 60 others are missing after a passenger ferry with more than 150 people on board sank off the Maluku Islands in eastern Indonesia, officials said.

Nus Sileti, a transportation official, said the ship, which was packed with people heading home for the Christmas holidays, capsized after running into stormy weather.

It was pounded by waves 10ft (3m) high.

Mr Sileti said seven bodies had been pulled from the water but about 80 people had been rescued.

It was Indonesia’s second shipping disaster in less than a week.

On Saturday, a ship packed with asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Iran sank off Java island.

More than 200 people are believed to have died.
