THE GUARDIAN/At least 13 people were killed and four others are missing after a tourist boat capsized on Saturday in bad weather off the coast of Hội An, a world heritage-listed Vietnamese city, an official said.

The accident occurred as the vessel carrying 39 local tourists and crew members was returning to Hội An from Cu Lao Cham island – a popular spot for diving, snorkelling and water sports.

Local Communist party chief Nguyen Sinh confirmed 13 people had drowned and four were missing. Rescue efforts were suspended in the evening because of fading light, he said.
