Seven South Korean tourists have died and at least 19 more are missing after a boat capsized on the Danube River in Hungary’s capital, Budapest.
Thirty tourists and three tour guides, as well two Hungarian crew members, were on the boat when it was hit by another vessel while moored.
Seven people have been rescued, and a massive search operation is continuing on a river swollen by heavy rainfall.
The boat that sank near the parliament building in central Budapest was identified as the Hableany, or Mermaid.
