Twenty-one people were missing after an overloaded boat carrying an estimated 100 passengers capsized Tuesday in a remote Malaysian jungle river, police and a local official said.
The accident occurred on Malaysia's longest river, the Rajang, which flows from deep in the rugged interior of Borneo island in the state of Sarawak, Bakar Anak Sebau, police chief of the remote town of Belaga, told AFP.
"An express boat carrying about 100 people has capsized in a swift-flowing river. I believe there were women and children onboard," he said.
