An overcrowded ferry capsized and sank in shark-infested waters off the Caribbean coast of Guatemala, killing at least 68 people and possibly leaving half a dozen others missing, officials said Monday. Forty-six people were rescued. The accident occurred about 15 hours after another vessel, a pleasure boat carrying New Year's Eve revelers, sank off Rio de Janeiro, killing 51 people and leaving about 30 missing. The Brazilian ship, too, was reported overcrowded with passengers.
