KARACHI - Seven people drowned and another was missing after a boat carrying day-trippers sank in the Arabian Sea about two nautical miles off the Pakistani city of Karachi, officials said on Monday.

Air Commodore Khalid Farooq Chishti said 20 people were rescued after the boat sprang a leak and sank while returning to shore just before sunset on Sunday.

"Boats from a nearby Pakistan Air Force base were sent to the scene, and they recovered five bodies last night, and two more this morning," said Air Commodore Khalid Farooq Chishti.
