Corpses used to block road
LUCKNOW – At least 20 people died yesterday when a boat packed with labourers capsized on the Yamuna river in northern India, an official said. Twenty bodies have been recovered, Dharam Pal Singh, additional magistrate of Baghpat district in Uttar Pradesh state, told AFP. "It appears the boat was crowded beyond its capacity," he said. "The incident happened early in the morning. It was a privately hired boat and was carrying some 50 to 55 people," said Singh. Angry residents protested on the streets in Baghpat, accusing the administration of not providing help to the victims quickly enough.
