Ferry capsizes in Zamboanga


A ferry, Danica Joy 2, keeled over on its side while anchored at the Port of Zamboanga City and capsized late Thursday, but no casualty was reported. The ferry arrived in Zamboanga from Sandakan in Malaysia at 4 p.m. on the same day and five hours later, half of the ship was under water. The ferry is owned by Aleson Shipping Lines, which operates a fleet of passenger ships in the Visayas and Mindanao. Aleson executives did not give any statement, but one man, believed to be a shipping line official prevented the crew from talking to journalists covering the incident.
