More bodies recovered from South Korean ferry

MOKPO, South Korea (AP) - Divers off the southern coast of South Korea have now recovered 212 bodies from a ferry that sank two weeks ago.

But the crews are fighting strong currents and floating debris inside the ship today, as they search for the 90 passengers still missing.

After several days of sluggish search efforts because of bad weather, divers on Tuesday retrieved more than a dozen bodies from the ship.
