KIEV, October 17. /TASS/. At least twelve people drowned when a boat capsized off the Ukrainian Black Sea port of Odessa on Saturday, the country’s Ministry of Infrastructure said.
"During a rescue operation 23 people were saved and 12 bodies were recovered," the ministry said in a statement. "The search and rescue operation is under way. More information will follow."
According to preliminary information, as many as 36 people were aboard the motor boat, the ministry said.
