Death Toll Rises In The Sunken Ferry


JINDO, South Korea (AP) -- The number of confirmed deaths has shot up now that divers have found a way to enter the sunken ferry off the southern coast of South Korea.

The death toll stands at 104, with nearly 200 people still missing.

Meanwhile, prosecutors detained an additional two crew members today in the investigation into the sinking.

But they haven't yet obtained arrest warrants for them and four crew members detained Monday.

The captain and two other crew members are under arrest.
