Chinese Workers Face Grim Task Recovering Bodies From Eastern Star

the wreck of the Eastern Star, the cruise ship that capsized and sank on Monday night, plunging its 456 occupants – many of them elderly tourists – into the Yangtze’s gloomy swell, is China’s worst marine catastrophe since Mao Zedong’s Red Army swept to power in 1949.
On Thursday afternoon the vessel’s upended body poked from the water like a submarine resurfacing from the depths of what the Chinese call their Chang Jiang or Long River.
