Islamabad: Sixteen children were rescued after a boat capsized in Kohat district of Pakistan's northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday, an official said.

The boat carrying 25 children capsized in Tanda Dam of the district earlier in the morning, and the divers recovered 16 children, while nine were still missing, deputy commissioner of Kohat district Furqan Ashraf told Xinhua.

Talking to Xinhua, sources from a rescue organization--the Edhi Foundation--said that the children were students of a seminary and were visiting the dam for recreational activity.

The rescued children have been shifted to a nearby hospital.
