HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — State media in Mozambique say at least eight people from one family have died after their homemade boat sank in a central province. The sinking on a tributary of the Zambezi River in Sofala province came days after nearly 100 people died in one of the country’s worst shipwrecks. State-run Radio Mozambique says two people survived the latest sinking and two are missing. Many areas of Mozambique are accessible only by boats, which are often overcrowded.
