Naval vessels rescued more than 100 people after a packed ferry sank in heavy seas off Indonesia, but dozens could still be missing, the Edinburgh Evening News reported. Two navy ships had picked up 114 people. One person was confirmed dead. While a passenger list put the number of people on board at 106, it could have been as high as 160. The ferry was traveling from Kupang, on Timor island, to nearby Rote island when authorities lost contact with it during the evening voyage.
