Hong Kong ferry incident leaves over 100 injured

At least 124 people were injured when a high-speed ferry travelling to Hong Kong from Macau hit an object in the water, say officials.

The ferry, with 174 passengers and crew on board, lost power close to Lantau island, at about 18:00 local time (10:00GMT) and began taking on water. Marine police boats were sent to rescue the passengers, with local media saying many had injuries to limbs and faces. Some passengers waited on board to be rescued for several hours.
