Abdou Fataou of Togo, one of the eight survivors among the passengers of the boat which capsized off the Gabonese capital Libreville, waits at the Gendarmerie in Cape Esterias, on March 21, 2013. At least 30 people died in the accident. Police said the boat, which was carrying 65 people thought to be illegal immigrants, capsized in stormy weather overnight as it was travelling from Nigeria to Libreville. AFP journalists counted 30 bodies lying along the shore, with the boat still visible in the waters of Cape Esterias, which lies about 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of Libreville.
