Ferry from Batam to Dumai sank near Karimun Island

The Dumai Ekspress 10, the sister ship of the boat here, sank near Karimum Island. This is the similar boat that plies between Kukup and Tanjung Balai Karimun.

Over 25 bodies have been recovered. More than 240 people have been rescued and bought to Tanjung Balai Karimun.

This is the monsoon season and high waves are common in the Melacca straits off Sumatra.
