Army divers and rescue workers pulled more than 100 bodies out of a river after a packed ferry capsized in heavy winds and rain in remote northeast India, an official said Tuesday. At least 100 people were still missing Tuesday after the ferry carrying about 350 people broke into two pieces late Monday, said Pritam Saikia, the district magistrate of Goalpara district.
