Russian shipwreck death toll rises to 13

KRASNOYARSK. The death toll in a September 16 accident in which a sea liner sank while approaching Russia's Dudinka seaport rose to 13 on Thursday, as five more bodies were found inside the ship.

The number of deaths may rise further, said Vyacheslav Shchukin, deputy governor of the Taimyr autonomous district.

An initial investigation suggests the accident was caused either by high waves or by an incorrect maneuver by the overloaded ship, Interfax reported.
