South Korean coast guard officials say they’ve found three more bodies from the sinking of a ferry, raising the death toll to 32.
Coast guard spokesman Kim Jae-in says the latest bodies were recovered Saturday, three days after the ferry sank.
The updated death toll follows the arrest Saturday of the captain of the ferry on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people in need. More than 300 are missing or dead.
Officials say strong currents and rain have made it difficult to get inside the ferry, where most of the passengers are believed to have been trapped.
