Ten children were killed and seven others injured when a boat capsized on a lake in northern Pakistan on Sunday, police said.

The boat was carrying 25 to 30 students when it capsized on the dam at Tanda Kohat, a lake in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Rescue operations are continuing, police said.

Despite the mass drownings that frequently occur in the country, due to overloaded and worn-out ships overturning in its waters, many people in Pakistan cannot swim.

Women are particularly vulnerable in these situations as they typically wear covering clothing, which weighs them down in the water, and a conservative culture discourages them from learning to swim.

The tragedy happened on the same day that a bus crash in southern Pakistan killed 39 people.
