Boat overturns off Haiti : 6 dead and at least 10 missing
Authorities in Haiti say at least 6 people (all women) drowned and about 10 are missing after a boat overturned off the Canal de la Tortue.
Local Civil Protection agency representative Jose Rethone says 23 people have been rescued and a search is continuing for more survivors near the city of Port-de-Paix.
Rethone says the boat overturned on Thursday in rough seas as it was carrying people on a regular route between the island of La Tortue and Port-de-Paix. He says officials believe about 40 people were on board but there was no manifest.
