An overcrowded ferry has sunk in eastern Indonesia, killing at least 10 people.

Reppind, a search-and-rescue official in Kolaka town, says that so far, 93 people have been safely rescued from the passenger ship, which went down in waters off Sulawesi island just after midnight.

Others are feared missing, but it’s not clear how many.

Mr. Reppind said Saturday that many of those on board the Windu Karsa were heading home to celebrate the end of the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.
