Ferry Sinks After Collision in Philippines
Authorities say 82 people listed as missing are believed to have died, trapped in the ferry that sank to the sea floor off the central Philippine port of Cebu. Divers are trying to cut into the vessel, at a depth of 150 feet, and plug an oil leak.
The MV St. Thomas of Aquinas, an inter-island ferry loaded with 870 passengers and crew, had been at sea for about nine hours after leaving Nasipit, a port on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, when it approached Cebu, a bustling economic zone about 350 miles south of Manila. (Reuters)
