Divers plan to enter capsized Philippine ferry

Divers will attempt to get inside the capsized ferry off the coast of the Philippines Tuesday to try to locate hundreds of missing passengers and crew, reports say. About 800 people are still missing after the Sulpico Lines ferry Princess of Stars capsized during Typhoon Fengshen on Saturday. UPDATE: Divers in the central Philippines have found bodies but no survivors inside a ferry that sank during a typhoon with more than 800 people on board. Since the vessel capsized Saturday more than 40 survivors and dozens of bodies have been recovered at sea or on nearby islands, but most passengers and crew remain missing. Douglas Bakshian reports from Manila.
