Capsized Chinese Cruise Ship Righted; 330 Still Missing

Top-deck cabins poked out of the water from a capsized river cruise ship on the Yangtze on Friday after disaster teams righted the vessel to quicken the search for the more than 330 people who are still missing.
Transport Ministry spokesman Xu Chengguang said divers found more bodies as they worked overnight to attach iron chains to the vessel, bringing the total number of bodies found to 97.
The operation to right the Eastern Star started late Thursday and shifted the focus from finding survivors from Monday night's sudden capsizing in a severe storm to retrieving bodies.
