    A Bangladesh ferry carrying around 50 passengers collided with a cargo vessel and sank on Sunday in the Shitalakhsya River south of the capital Dhaka, leaving at least 26 people dead and a few still missing, officials said.

    Twenty one bodies had been recovered on Monday. The ferry sank just after it departed from the industrial Narayanganj district about 20 km (12 miles) from Dhaka, to Munshiganj, said Mustain Billah, Narayanganj district administrator.

    “Most of the bodies were found inside the sunken boat after it was dragged to the bank,” he said, adding a few still could be missing.

    Police and officials said some of the passengers managed to swim ashore.
