Indonesia ferry tragedy: 200 rescued

JAKARTA 02 January – Latest reports suggest that 200 passengers and crew of the Indonesian ferry Senopati Nusantara have been rescued after the vessel sank in heavy seas at about midnight on Friday 29/Saturday 30 December. The 2,718-gt ferry was heading south from Kalimantan on Borneo Island for the port of Semarang on the north coast of the island of Java. There were 628 passengers and 57 crew, according to the ship's manifest. Survivors said the vessel started to roll uncontrollably and capsized while those on board were trying to abandon ship. Indonesia's president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, has urged rescuers to keep looking for survivors. A spokesman for Indonesia's eastern naval fleet said it has been difficult to compile figures because victims' bodies have been scattered over about 175km of coast. IMO Secretary-General Efthimios Mitropoulos has expressed his condolences to the Indonesian transport minister, Hatta Rajasa, and to the Indonesian Ambassador in London. The UN agency is currently working on a technical co-operation project with Interferry to enhance the safety of non-Convention ferries, including domestic passenger ferries.
