The confirmed death toll from the South Korean ferry that capsized last week has reached 113, as divers recover more bodies from the sunken hull.

Officials says rescuers searching for bodies have been able to take advantage of better weather on Tuesday, with more than 190 passengers still missing or presumed trapped inside the vessel.

The ferry tipped over and sank within two hours, but it is not yet clear why.

The crew have been criticised for allegedly failing to save passengers.
