Ferries Collide Off Hong Kong

At least 36 are dead after two ferries collided off the waters of Hong Kong late Monday. In the city's worst disaster in years, a boat carrying 120 passengers sailed into another boat traveling the opposite direction. The boat that quickly sank, the Lamma IV, was carrying staff members and family of the company Hong Kong Electric to a fireworks show. The other boat, which did not sink, was a regular ferry that sails between Lamma and Hong Kong island. As a rescue team continues to search for survivors, police arrested six crew members.
