Divers are hoping to resume their search for the bodies of more than 200 migrants, two days after their boat sank off the Italian island of Lampedusa.

Rescuers have so far found 111 bodies, and 155 people have been pulled alive from the sea.

Many bodies are expected to be found in the shipwreck.

The search was hampered yesterday by rough seas.

The boat was carrying some 500 people mostly from Eritrea and Somalia.

That’s it for news, sports is next.
