The captain and one crew member of the tourist boat that sunk in Vietnam have been arrested, reports news agency AP.

The incident last week saw twelve people killed, including two Swedish tourists.

The boat was flooded when the crew member failed to close a valve for the night, while the bilge pump was turned off.

And the state-controlled Vietnamese paper Thanh Nien reports that the company that owns the boat was also the owner of a craft that sunk in 2009, with five deaths.
