A boat carrying up to 100 asylum seekers crashed into cliffs at Christmas Island in terrible weather yesterday, killing 28 people, including women and children. It's a heartbreaking tale, with graphic photos and videos showing people desperately trying keep themselves afloat as the boat smashed into debris on the cliffs.

The navy managed to rescue 44 people -- all Iraqis and Iranians -- from the waters, with 11 of those being under 18. The number of dead could rise as bodies are still being collected.
