  • A boat accident in Bangladesh has been killed at least 37 people, most of them were women and children.

    An officer said there were so many of the male passengers were able to swim ashore.

    Local officials say the boat capsized on the Surma river in northeastern Bangladesh late Saturday after colliding with a cargo ship.

    Officials say at least 80 people were on board the boat. He also added that the area where the boat went down, in the Sunamganj district about 240 kilometers northeast of Dhaka, is in one of the most remote parts of the country, making it difficult for additional help to reach the site.

    Bangladesh has more than 200 rivers.  Boat accidents are common due to lax safety regulations.
