A Philippine ferry with at least 28 people on board sank early Thursday southeast of Manila, leaving four passengers dead and 18 missing, the coast guard said. Details were sketchy, but the ferry left port in the provincial capital of Lucena and was headed to central Masbate island when it started taking on water. Balilo said it was not clear what caused the ferry to sink.
