Boat collision kills four in Taiwan

Taipei: At least four people were killed and five remain missing after a boat capsized near Taiwan's Taoyuan city, an official said.
 
Among the identified bodies were those of the captain, two fishermen from China and another from Indonesia, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday. 
 
Divers said fishing nets were preventing them from getting into the capsized boat.
 
The fishing boat, "Shih Hui No.31", which departed from Taiwan's Keelung port, collided with a cargo ship, the "Asia Cement No.2" on Friday.
 
Taiwan's coast guard dispatched vessels and a helicopter to search for the crew. The rescue operation and an investigation into the cause of the collision are under way.
