Hong Kong fatal boat collision leads to arrests


Seven crew members have now been arrested from the two boats that collided in the waters off Hong Kong, leaving 38 people dead.

Those held on suspicion they did not "exercise the care required of them by law" include the captains of the two vessels - a public ferry and a company boat.

Five children are among the dead after the boats collided on Monday evening.
