Amateur video captures the fatal Thai boat accident which has killed at least 15 Thai people and left 11 people missing.

Thailand authorities are continuing to search for missing passengers after a boat carrying Muslim pilgrims sank on Thailand's Chao Phraya river, leaving at least 15 people dead.

The accident happened on Sunday afternoon near the ancient city of Ayutthaya, a popular tourist attraction, when the boat packed with pilgrims returning from a mosque hit a concrete bank in strong tides.

"The death toll is now confirmed at 15, with 11 people still missing," Ayutthaya deputy governor Rewat Prasong told the AFP news agency.
