South Korea ferry: Anxious wait as death toll rises

The confirmed death toll from the South Korean ferry that capsized last week has passed 110, as divers recover more bodies from the sunken hull.

Rescuers searching for bodies have been able to take advantage of better weather on Tuesday, officials say, with more than 190 passengers still missing or presumed trapped inside the vessel.

The ferry tipped over and sank within two hours, but it is not yet clear why.
