MAKASSAR, Indonesia (AP) – Rescuers in Indonesia were searching for 25 people who were missing after a cargo boat sank in the Makassar Strait in South Sulawesi province, officials said yesterday.

A total of 42 people were on the boat when it sank in bad weather on Thursday morning while travelling from a seaport in Makassar to Kalmas Island in Pangkep Regency, said Head of the provincial search and rescue agency Djunaidi. Like many Indonesians, Djunaidi goes by only one name.
