Japan's coastguard on Sunday confirmed at least 10 people were killed after a tourist boat sank in frigid waters a day earlier, with the search for others onboard continuing.

"We have confirmed the deaths of all 10 people" who have so far been retrieved from the Kazu I sightseeing boat, a coastguard spokesman told AFP. The vessel was carrying 26 people when it began to sink on Saturday afternoon.
