At least 100 people were feared drowned after a crowded ferry capsized on Tuesday in southern Bangladesh, officials said.

Witnesses said more than 100 people, many holidaymakers, were trapped in the sunken vessel.

The ferry with about 250 people on board was caught in a tropical storm in Shariatpur district, nearly 85 km south of the capital Dhaka, officials said.
