In western India, at least three schoolgirls killed when a boat, packed full of students, capsized in waters yesterday. The vessel reportedly overturned when they crowded onto one side to take selfies. Authorities say as many as 40 were crammed on board and not one was wearing a life jacket. India's coast guard says 23 children were being treated in hospital with 9 others discharged.
