Norman Atlantic ferry fire: Uncertainty over passenger numbers

Two Albanian seamen have been killed on a tugboat while towing the fire-stricken Norman Atlantic ferry.

Both men died after being hit by a connecting cable between the vessels on Tuesday, Albanian officials say.

At least 10 people were killed and more than 400 were rescued, after fire broke out on the ferry in stormy seas.

Meanwhile Italian authorities are continuing to search the ferry. They have been unable to verify the precise number of people originally on board.
