Danish news reports : At least 44 passengers dead. Passengers were mostly "western" tourists.

This is about a month after an Egyptian ferry sunk with almost a thousand casualties.
Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs

I heard that they are "just" missing and its not sure that they are dead, although its most likely.
