THE HAGUE (AFP) - Two British passengers on a Dutch-bound ferry were airlifted to hospital in a serious condition after two separate fights onboard, including one over a slice of pizza, Dutch police said Sunday.
The incidents happened on the 1,360-passenger ferry Pride of Rotterdam on an overnight trip from Hull in England to Rotterdam, the world's fifth-largest port.
