MOSCOW, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Russian tour operators are trying to find out whether there were Russian tourists on board the ship that sank in Bangladesh, Executive Director of the Russian Association of Tour Operators (ATOR) Maiya Lomidze told Itar-Tass.
“We are now getting in touch with the tour operators, to clarify is Russian citizens could be on board,” she said. “According to preliminary data, the presence of Russians on this ferry is unlikely,” Lomidze added.
The passenger ferryboat Shariatpur-1, which was carrying 300 people sank in the Meghna River in Bangladesh on Tuesday.
