Zanzibar ferry disaster: Scores die, many more missing

At least 163 people have died after a heavily overloaded ferry (MV Spice Islander) sank off the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar with more than 500 people on board.

More than 100 people are still missing, but 325 survivors have been rescued, Zanzibar's emergencies minister said.
