Pleasure boat sinks on the Moscow River


A pleasure boat has sunk on one of Russia’s main rivers, the second such accident in only three weeks.

At least seven people have been killed and rescuers are warning the total could rise to 10.

More than a dozen people were onboard the boat on the Moscow River when it collided with a barge in the early hours and sank.

122 people died three weeks ago when a pleasure boat sank on the River Volga in the central Russian republic of Tatarstan.
