China ship capsize: Workers search Eastern Star's cabins

Chinese authorities have said they now believe 396 people died when a ferry capsized on the Yangtze River on Monday.

The number rose dramatically after emergency crews searched the cabins of the Eastern Star, which has been hoisted from the water by huge cranes.

The manager of the company which operated the Eastern Star has apologised on television.

Jill McGivering reports.
