MOSCOW, August 17 (RIA Novosti) - Rescuers are searching for 15 people still missing after a boat carrying foreign tourists sank in eastern Indonesia, Reuters reported Sunday, citing local authorities.

The incident took place Saturday night, but the local authorities were only alerted about it on Sunday, a representative of the rescue team told the agency. The vessel left the island of Lombok for Komodo Thursday night with 20 foreign citizens and five local crew members on board.
