Storm Kills 13 Children, Adult At Lake In Russia

At least 14 people, reportedly 13 children and an adult, have been killed, after a storm struck a boating party, at a lake in northern Russia.

Thirteen children and an adult died when a storm caught a boating party on Lake Syamozero in northern Russia’s Karelia region.

Most of the survivors reached an island in the lake while others were found in a village, some of them washed ashore.

The children were on holiday from Moscow, and Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has sent doctors and psychologists.

Three people have been arrested on suspicion of safety violations.
