60 feared to have drowned in African boat capsizing

KAMPALA--As many as 60 people are feared to have drowned when a boat capsized on Lake Albert on the border between Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo, reports said Saturday.

Uganda's Daily Monitor newspaper said the boat, traveling between two districts in western Uganda, capsized shortly before midday Saturday.

"We have also recovered 19 bodies but we expect more bodies," local official Oscar Chunyai was quoted as saying. He added that dozens more people had been rescued by fisherman who saw the accident.
