180 dead in Liberia

A wooden raft with more than two hundred passengers aboard sank in northern Liberia on Friday. 180 people are feared dead.

Defence Minister Daniel Chea declared that only 15 people had been found alive in the River Mofa, in the north-east of Liberia. The river flows into Lake Piso, a major tourist attraction.

The raft was one of three which was crowded with football fans who were travelling to the funeral of a local football player.
