One Dutchman and one Italian woman are still missing after Sunday’s ferry disaster in Indonesia, according to the Telegraaf.

Five Dutch holidaymakers are among the 23 people rescued after a ferry carrying 20 tourists and five crew between the Indonesian islands Lombok and Komodo hit a reef and sank.

The other tourists came from Britain, Germany, Spain and New Zealand.

Some of the survivors spent 40 hours in a tiny dinghy before being picked up by rescuers.

One of the Dutch survivors, a Utrecht medical student named as Els, survived by swimming to an island and spending the night there with two others, the Telegraaf says.
