A sightseeing boat loaded with tourists caught fire and sank Tuesday off the southeast coast of South Korea, leaving 25 people dead and 13 missing. Many of the 48 people rescued were burned when an overheated engine caught fire and engulfed the 24-ton Kukdong-ho in flames, news reports said. The boat, carrying 86 people, sank off Koje Island, 200 miles southeast of Seoul, in mid-afternoon after efforts to activate fire extinguishers failed, the reports said.
