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.
