A ferry that sank off the Pacific nation of Kiribati – killing 95 people – was overloaded, had a drunken crew, and was not allowed to carry passengers at sea, an inquiry has found. Of the 102 people aboard the MV Butiraoi last year, only five passengers and two crew survived. After the boat sank, it was eight days before the alarm was raised, and most victims died at sea from hunger, dehydration and hypothermia.
