MUNSHIGANJ, Bangladesh (AP) - Rescuers in central Bangladesh have recovered at least 22 bodies after a ferry capsized during a storm in a river.

Police estimate that at least 100 people are still missing, but a local administrator says there's no clear picture about exactly how many people were on board because the ferry operators did not maintain a passenger list.
