(7 Jul 2018) At least 41 people have been confirmed dead after a tour boat sank in a storm off the southern Thai resort island of Phuket on Thursday. The search continued on Saturday for 15 mostly Chinese tourists missing in Thailand's biggest tourist-related disaster in years. It was not clear how many of the dead and missing were Chinese. In announcing a previous death toll of 33, authorities said all of those victims were Chinese. The boat, with 105 people, including 93 tourists, on board capsized and sank after it was hit by five-metre (16-foot) waves. Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong announced at a news conference on Saturday evening that the death toll had climbed to 41, with 15 missing. Reports in Thai media said police charged the owner and captain of the stricken ship with carelessness causing death and injury.
