Death toll 52 in Philippines ferry disaster

Philippine navy divers retrieved bodies Monday from inside a ferry that sank last week after colliding with a cargo ship.

The discovery of more victims' remains brought the number of people confirmed dead from the disaster in the southern Philippines to 52, the Philippine Coast Guard said. Another 68 people remain missing and 750 have been rescued, it said.
