the gall of the wild

If gods there be, they must hate Indonesia.

JAKARTA, Indonesia - A ferry capsized in a severe storm in central Indonesia Sunday, killing an estimated 250 passengers onboard.

Fishing boats were able to rescue only 18 survivors, according to a port official in Parepare on the island of Sulawesi, where the ferry began its journey.

About 250 passengers and 17 crew are believed to have been aboard the ferry when it went down 30 miles off western Sulawesi.
