At least 10 people have died when their boat capsized while they were travelling to attend a funeral, says an official in Tanzania’s semiautonomous region.
Regional Commissioner of South Region Mattar Zahor said nine other boat passengers were rescued and treated after the capsizing on Tuesday night near Kisiwapanza, an islet adjacent to Mkoani district. Still others are missing, Zahor said.
