Hundred are feared dead after a ferry with 545 passengers aboard broke apart and sank in Indonesia's Java Sea during a violent storm. By late last night 59 people had been rescued by naval ships and other vessels.
Officials fear many of those on the Senopati died soon after the ferry went down when it was battered by giant waves. It was the second ferry disaster in Indonesian waters in as many days. The ferry was on its way from the island of Borneo to Semarang when disaster struck at midnight on Friday. Making his last radio contact, the captain told port authorities in Semarang the ship was capsizing.
'We all just prayed as waves got higher,' said Cholid, who survived by clinging to some wooden planks but who lost his daughter.
