    Indonesia ferry tragedy: 31 dead as boat sinks off Sulawesi

    Officials say they are still searching for three other passengers who "we strongly believe are still inside the ship".


    At least 130 passengers have been rescued from a sinking ferry off an Indonesian island, but 31 people were killed when the vessel went down in rough seas.


    After spending the night on the stricken boat, the passengers were rescued early on Wednesday morning, officials said.


    The KM Lestari Maju, which began sinking in rough seas near Sulawesi on Tuesday afternoon, had 139 passengers on board.


    The vessel's captain steered it towards shore in a bid to save lives, grounding it between 655-985 feet (200-300 meters) from land.
