Survivor pulled from capsized Tanzanian ferry as death toll reaches at least 218

Divers rescued a man from the wreckage of an overcrowded Tanzanian ferry, two days after it capsized on Lake Victoria killing at least 218 people. Navy divers resumed their search inside the sunken MV Nyerere after hearing sounds that suggested signs of life.

They pulled one man out of the overturned ship and he was rushed to hospital. His condition was not immediately known. Bodies continued to float to the surface around the vessel, which initial estimates suggested had been carrying more than 300 people. President John Magufuli ordered the arrest of those responsible for the sinking.
