Two New Zealanders are reported to be among 10 people rescued when a boat travelling between islands in eastern Indonesia sank last night.
A search and rescue official on the island of Lombok said he did not know the fate of the other 15 people on the boat, which had a crew of five Indonesians and was carrying 20 foreigners.
Reuters reports it was on its way from Lombok to the Komodo Islands, a voyage that can take three days.
Tajudin Sam, who runs the tour company operating the boat, said it probably ran into stormy weather.
The official nationalities of five of the 10 rescued people are known - two each from New Zealand and Spain, and one from Britain.
