33 dead after boat capsizes in Thailand
Dhaka, 7 July, Abnews: The death toll from the sinking of a tourist boat off Thailand's Phuket island has risen to 33 as rescuers deployed helicopters to search for 23 people still missing.
 
The Phoenix capsized and sank in rough seas when it was toppled by 5m high waves on Thursday with 105 passengers on board, including 93 Chinese tourists and 12 Thai crew and tourist guides.
 
The Royal Thai Navy said "quite a few bodies" had been found inside the sunken vessel, while others were found floating in the water.
 
Rear Admiral Chareonpol Kumrasee told Reuters on Friday that the chances of survival for the missing were low.
