Zanzibar ferry disaster: Survivors say boat overcrowded

The ferry that capsized off Tanzania, killing at least 192 people, was overcrowded and appeared to be in trouble before it even left port, according to survivors.

The boat was carrying at least 800 people when it sank between Zanzibar's main island, Unguja, and the island of Pemba during an overnight sailing.

Will Ross reports from Nairobi.
