KUWAIT CITY, Dec 26, (Agencies): His Highness the Amir Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah addressed on Sunday a condolence cable to President of Bangladesh Mohammad Abdulhamid over the victims of a deadly ferry fire in Sugandha River in southern Bangladesh. In the cable, His Highness the Amir wished mercy for the victims and a swift recovery for those injured in the fire.
His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Mishal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al- Sabah and His Highness Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah sent similar cables to President Abdulhamid. Bangladeshi authorities buried 23 unclaimed bodies on Saturday after a day-long search failed to recover more victims or survivors of a massive fire on a crowded river ferry that left 40 people dead. Habibur Rahman, a top government official, said he had an incomplete list of 17 missing people who were on board the ferry on Friday when the fire awoke passengers around 3 a.m., forcing many to leap into cold waters and swim ashore.
