Death Toll Climbs to 82 as China Rights Capsized Ship

The death toll from a Chinese cruise ship that capsized on the Yangtze River has climbed to 82, state media said on Friday, as authorities righted the battered vessel and said there was no chance of finding anyone else alive.
The rescue mission has become an operation to recover hundreds of bodies from the ship, which was carrying 456 people when it overturned in a freak tornado on Monday night. More than 200 divers have groped through murky water after cutting through the hull, searching every cabin on board, but have found no more survivors.
Some family members have expressed anger at the scarcity of information, and many have come to Jianli county in Hubei province where the incident happened.
