Probe finds drunk crew, structural issues on Kiribati ferry

FILE - This Jan. 28, 2018, file photo released by the New Zealand Defense Force shows a wooden dinghy, left, carrying seven survivors from a missing ferry and a fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean. The crew of an overloaded ferry that sank near the Pacific nation of Kiribati last year killing 95 people was drunk and the flimsy catamaran was not licensed to carry passengers, an inquiry has found.
