Tanzania Ferry Disaster- Death Toll Rises

Burials have begun for victims who died after the overcrowded ferry capsized on Lake Victoria, in Tanzania, killing at least 224 people.

Kasssim Majaliwa, Tanzinia’s prime minister, lead mourners at a funeral service, according to the Tanzania Broadcasting Corporation.

On Friday Tanzania’s president, John Magufuli, ordered the arrest of those responsible and declared a four-day period of mourning for the victims.

Mr Magufuli reportedly said in a televised speech that “negligence has cost us so many lives”, and said it seemed “clear that the ferry was overloaded”.

“The arrests have already begun,” he said.
