BISSAU: At least 22 people died and 69 were missing after their overloaded boat sank Friday off the capital of Guinea-Bissau, rescue workers said.

 

A total of 97 people were aboard the boat en route from the Atlantic Ocean island of Boloma to Bissau, they told AFP.

 

"Twenty-two bodies were recovered and six survivors were rescued," a rescue worker said, adding that a search was under way for the remaining missing. (AFP)
