More bodies found after Bangladesh ferry disaster

Rescuers have recovered a dozen more bodies after a ferry reportedly carrying up to 100 passengers capsized on a river in Bangladesh, raising the death toll to 14.

Dozens of passengers were rescued or swam to shore after the ferry went down on Friday on the River Meghna in Munshiganj, 20 miles south of the capital, Dhaka.

Local government administrator Mohammad Saiful Hassan said the search for survivors was called off, but some relatives say that their loved ones are still missing.
