LAMPEDUSA, Italy (AP) — Authorities say divers have recovered more bodies from a fiery shipwreck of a fishing boat packed with 500 migrants from Eritrea.

Financial police Maj. Leonardo Ricci said divers have recovered about 10 bodies since resuming the search Sunday morning. He said the search and recovery would continue “as long as the sea is calm and there is light.”

The search had been suspended for the last two days due to rough seas. There are 155 survivors, and over 200 people remain missing.
