Gillard warns of more Christmas Island shipwreck deaths

Australia's Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has warned that there may be further loss of life from the ship which crashed off the coast of Christmas Island.

She said the boat may have been carrying more than the 70 passengers originally thought, and that the country should prepare for the "likelihood that more bodies will be found".

Australia has launched a criminal investigation into the incident.
