In Bangladesh, disastrous ferry accidents are common. Victims, however, say that finding justice after they've lost their loved ones is exceedingly rare.

The Bangladesh inland water authority admits that the majority of ferries involved in accidents either belong to local politicians or their powerful associates, which means any sort of prosecution is difficult

The report from one such ferry sinking, which led to the deaths of hundreds of people, has been handed to the country's shipping minister.
