Rescuers searched Indonesia’s Lake Toba on Tuesday for dozens of passengers still missing after a ferry capsized at the popular tourist destination. Anguished relatives waited by the shore for news as several hundred personnel fanned out across the huge body of water on Sumatra island. The wooden vessel sank Monday afternoon with an estimated 80 people aboard, authorities have said, just days after more than a dozen people were killed in another maritime accident across the country. At least one person has been found dead in the latest sinking and 18 were rescued.
