    SEOUL: At least ten people died when a South Korean fishing charter boat capsized off the country’s southwest, the coastguard said Sunday. The 9.77-ton Dolphine went missing near the island of Chuja Saturday night and its wreckage was found on an island nearby Sunday morning, the coastguard said. Three people were rescued and 10 bodies have been found so far, it said, adding it was unclear how many were on board. A public passenger record showed 22 people on board, but at least four people on the list were confirmed to have not boarded the vessel, it said. One of the three survivors was also not on the list, it said, adding search efforts involving dozens of ships and divers were underway.
