Nigerian Shipwreck Kills 164 Passengers

At least 45 people are dead after a tragic shipwreck off the coast of Nigeria Tuesday. The wooden boat capsized roughly 40 nautical miles off the coast. There are only two known survivors—a young boy and a woman who managed to stay afloat by clinging to a gas cylinder long enough to be rescued by fishermen. The passengers were mostly traders who were taking the boat across the Gulf of Guinea, heading for Gabon in central Africa.
