More bodies recovered from Korean ferry; over 170 confirmed dead

Seoul - Divers pulled more bodies from the upper decks of a sunken South Korean ferry Thursday, bringing the death toll from the disaster to 171, Yonhap News Agency reported.

The teams of divers are trying to recover the bodies, many from the third and fourth decks, as quickly as possible before the expected onset of worse weather on Friday, the report said.

Some 130 people are still unaccounted for, mostly high school students from near Seoul who were on a field trip.
