Fire on cruise ship with HK holidaymakers put out


Two Hong Kong holidaymakers are unharmed after a fire broke out on their cruise ship in waters near the Philippines. The fire aboard the Azamara Quest disabled its engines, leaving it drifting in waters south of Manila on Friday night. The fire was put out but one crew member was injured. About 1,000 people are on board. Once repairs are completed, the Quest is due to arrive in Sandakan, Malaysia, today.
