VTV.vn - At least 30 people died and over a hundred believed to be missing after a boat sank on Saturday evening in lake Mai-Ndombe, 300 miles northeast of the capital of Congo.

350 passengers were on the boat when the accident occured. The number of casualties might have been higher, as many passengers on board could be illegal migrants and thereby, not included in the statistics. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, incidents related to boats often occur, mainly due to overloading passengers and cargo.
