DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - News reports say a ferry packed with more than 100 people has capsized in a river in central Bangladesh.

Reports say local villagers rescued 38 people after the ferry went down in a river in Munshiganj district, 32 kilometers (20 miles) south of Dhaka.

Government officials were not immediately available for comment.

The reports say the ferry was on a local run from Narayanganj city to Matlab in the south. A rescue ship has been sent to the scene.

Ferry accidents are common in Bangladesh, a delta nation of 153 million people.
