South Korean ferry: Confirmed dead now at 113

JINDO, South Korea - As more bodies are recovered from a sunken South Korean ferry, the number of confirmed dead has reached 113, with about 190 people still missing.
 
Meanwhile, four crew members who are accused of abandoning the ship and failing to protect the passengers have been arrested, three days after warrants were issued for the captain and two other crew members.
 
The victims were overwhelmingly students from a single high school. More than three quarters of the 323 students who were on board are dead or missing. Nearly two-thirds of the other 153 people aboard survived.
 
Officials say most of the bodies have been found on the third or fourth floors of the ferry, where many passengers seemed to have gathered.
