Darkest Day in Tonga's Maritime History.

My Island Kingdom of Tonga is still in shocked and in mourning from the loss of lives and for the missing crews and passengers of the MV Princess Ashika that sunk early last Thursday.

I have to say that this tragic loss is what perhaps the darkest day in Tonga's maritime history that struck the heart of a sea-faring people.

The numbers of those who was on board the MV Princess Ashika has increased to 149 with 54 rescued, 28 of those were crew members and 26 were passengers. Two bodies have been recovered, one male who's now been identified as a British National and the other body hasn't been identified. 93 are still missing and Search and Rescue are still under way but hopes is running out.

Condolences and Prayers to all the families.
