MANILA, Philippines (AP) -- Philippine officials say divers have managed to get inside an upside-down ferry but have found only bodies and no survivors.
Philippine coast guard officials made the announcement three days after the vessel capsized with more than 800 people aboard during a powerful typhoon.
Navy spokesman Lt. Col. Edgard Arevalo told dzBB radio Tuesday that most of the bodies were floating inside, trapped when the ship suddenly tilted and went belly up Saturday.
He would not speculate on whether anyone still might be found alive -- saying the ship's interior was too dark to see how many bodies were there -- but indicated that the time since the disaster made it unlikely.
