A small rickety wooden boat believed to be carrying around 70 Indonesian migrants sank in the Malacca Strait early Thursday killing at least 13 people, Malaysian officials said.

The boat sank in choppy waters off Malaysia's western coast near Sauh Cape near the coastal town of Sabak Bernam in central Selangor state, Mohamad Aliyas Hamdan, the local head of the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, told AFP.

"Local fishermen have rescued 13 people and have found 13 bodies," he said.
