Boat capsizes in China, 10 killed

In China, a boat carrying passengers across a river has capsized in Banrao village of Guizhou province, killing at least 10 people.

State broadcaster CCTV today said, eight were still missing. The captain was among 11 people rescued. 

The injured are being treated in a hospital, while the captain has been taken into custody for questioning.

The Ministry of Emergency Management said, the vessel was a motor-powered iron boat that was self-built rather than obtained from an industrial manufacturer.
