At least 18 people have died after a tourist boat carrying 150 collided with a bridge in central Thailand and capsized.
The double-decker boat was carrying over 150 Muslim tourists returning from a trip to the city of Ayutthaya on Sunday afternoon, when it hit a bridge on the Chao Praya River and partially submerged.
According to the Bangkok Post newspaper, 15 deaths were confirmed on Sunday, and another three bodies found on Monday after the search operation has been resumed. The outlet cited Ayutthaya Governor Prayoon Rattanasenee as saying that there were six men, six women and a child among the dead, although the exact number of passengers was still to be determined. Details of other victims remain unknown.
