Boats capsize in storm off coast of Mozambique, at least 15 fishermen killed

MAPUTO, Mozambique (AP) — Mozambican authorities say five fishing boats have capsized in a storm off the country's central coast, killing at least 15 fishermen.

Maria Pinto, a Zambezia provincial official, said Sunday the fishermen ignored storm warnings from the weather service when they went out into the Indian Ocean Saturday night. She says five fishermen were rescued, and there were fears more bodies may be found.
