Kenya's president says 10 people have died after the boat they were traveling in capsized off the East African nation's coast.

President Uhuru Kenyatta says in a message of condolence that the boat had been ferrying 22 people and building materials Tuesday from the Ndau Islands to Lamu. Kenyatta says the boat capsized in the Mkanda Channel due to high tides.

Fatal boat accidents off Kenya's coast in the Indian Ocean are rare.
