23 killed in massive fire on Indonesian tourist boat


A massive fire erupted in a boat carrying hundreds of local tourists to an island north of Jakarta on Sunday, leaving at least 23 dead and 17 injured, officials said. Passengers panicked and jumped into the sea as flames engulfed the Zahro Express shortly after it left port to head to the popular holiday island of Tidung, the national disaster agency said. Another 17 people were missing and 194 were rescued following the blaze.
