Jakarta: Six people were killed after a ship caught fire off Indonesia’s Sumatra island, a disaster management official said on Saturday.

At least 184 people were rescued from the Express Bahari after it caught fire while sailing from Bangka island to Belitung island, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the National Disaster Management Agency.

Rescuers were searching for seven people still missing.

The fire was believed to have been caused by a burning cigarette thrown by a passenger, he said.
