BANGKOK, November 4 (Itar-Tass) - The number of the killed in a passenger ferry wreck in Thailand, which occurred on Sunday, has increased to seven. There are three Russians among the dead, the local media reported on Monday.
According to them, there were more than 200 passengers onboard the Koh Larn Travel 1 ferryboat, which sank 500 metres from the shore; 100 of the passengers were injured. The ferry was to take the passengers to Pattaya, located 8 km from the island. The tragedy could have been caused by the fact that the vessel, designed for 150 people, was overcrowded and there were two-metre waves in the area.
The search and rescue efforts were resumed at dawn in the Gulf of Thailand, where the accident occurred. The Navy of Thailand is involved in the search operation.
