The Ukrainian captain of a cruise ship which collided with a sightseeing boat in central Budapest was detained after he was questioned as a suspect, police said late on Thursday. The sightseeing boat with 33 South Koreans and two Hungarian crew on board capsized and sank on Wednesday evening. The dead bodies of seven passengers have been found, while 21 people are still missing, police said. An attorney representing the Ukrainian captain told MTI on Friday that his client had not broken any rules, adding that he has filed a complaint against the accusations.
