At Least 65 Dead As Iraq Ferry Sinks

At least 65 people are reported to have died after a ferry sank in the Tigris river in the Iraqi city of Mosul.


Reports are that another 30 people are missing.

 

Most of the 100 passengers said to have been on board could not swim, the head of Mosul's civil defence agency said.


Rescue teams are trying to reach people who were on the ferry, which was reportedly heading towards a tourist island.


Authorities had reportedly warned people about rising water levels as the gates of the Mosul dam had been opened, and people are reportedly accusing the ship operator of ignoring the advice.


Images on social media show the upturned vessel and people floating in the fast-flowing river.
The vessel was reportedly on its way to a tourist area about 2.5 miles upstream.
