A ferry has capsized in central Bangladesh, killing at least 41 people including a young baby.

The ferry, carrying about 100 people aboard, collided with a trawler on the river Padma about 40km north-west of the capital Dhaka.

At least 50 passengers managed to swim to shore or were saved, with rescue efforts ongoing.

Accidents are common on Bangladesh's river network, with overcrowding and poor boat quality often to blame.
