All but one person on an Indonesian ferry that sank in eastern Indonesian waters are safe, a search and rescue official says.Some early reports incorrectly suggested that up to 100 people may have been missing.
Slamet Riyadi also says there were just 66 people on the ferry, 60 passengers and six crew, and not about 100 as officials had feared earlier.
"Just one passenger has yet to be found," he said.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
