Two ferries sank Monday in stormy Bangladesh, killing at least 48 people.
One boat carrying more than 400 passengers went down in the Buriganga River in Narayanganj, north of the capital of Dhaka.
Reports say at least 48 people drowned, but police say most passengers were rescued or swam to safety.
A second ferry capsized in the Meghna River Monday, also north of Dhaka. Few details are known about the second sinking.
Deadly ferry accidents are common in Bangladesh, where boats are a major form of transportation, but safety measures are rarely observed.
