Investigations are underway by both of the transport ministry, the environment ministry and the coast guard.Meanwhile, the National Ferries Company will increase the number of trips from and to Masirah to meet the needs of passengers. The incident occurred on Tuesday when a ferry transporting fifty passengers sank on the way to Masirah island in the Arabian Sea.All passengers were rescued and no injuries were reported, according to the Royal Oman Police (ROP). They were transported onto another ferry by the ROP and other citizens.The ferry is believed to have sunk due to overloading and improper distribution of the load, according to the ministry of transport.Two incidents of ferries sinking occurred in 2014, with no casualties reported.Dozens of collisions had been reported between ferries in the past three years, as some of these ferries are old and lack the minimum safety standards.
