Shipwreck kills 8 in central Mozambique

Eight people, including six children, died, while two are missing following a shipwreck on Monday in Mozambique’s Caia District.

The Radio Mozambique reported the death on Tuesday.

According to the report, the canoe-type boat was carrying a total of 12 people, most of them farmers, when it sank in the Zambezi River due to overcrowding.

The administrator of the Caia District, Nobre dos Santos, quoted by Radio Mozambique, said that after the shipwreck alert was given, a search began.

This is the second shipwreck within the month in Mozambique.

A makeshift ferry had capsized near the Island of Mozambique in the northern province of Nampula, where almost 100 people died.
