  Divers Begin Pulling Bodies From Sunken Ferry
    MOKPO, South Korea: After more than three days of frustration and failure, divers on Sunday finally found a way into a submerged ferry off South Korea´s southern shore, discovering more than a dozen bodies inside the ship and pushing the confirmed death toll to 49, officials said.

More than 250 people are still missing, most of them high school students on a holiday trip, and anguished families are furious with the pace of rescue efforts. Divers had previously failed to enter the ferry, officials said, because of extremely strong currents and bad visibility due to foul weather. They have yet to find any survivors in the ship.
