  FILE - In this Feb. 17, 2012 file photo, Vietnamese rescuers search for victims of a sunken tourist boat of which sail pole sticks out from the water on Halong Bay in northern Quang Ninh province, Vietnam. A total of 12 people from nine nations died when their boat sank early in the morning. Each day, up to 10,000 tourists from around the world sail around the bay, a UNESCO-heritage site and one of the country's most visited tourist attractions, and gaze at its stunning limestone pillars and caves.
