Divers have recovered 70 more bodies from the sea, where a ship carrying African migrants sank off the Italian island of Lampedusa on Thursday, bringing the official death toll to 181.

About 200 people are still missing and 155 are know to have survived the accident.

The search resumed after a long delay because of bad weather.
