Tanzanian authorities said on Saturday the death toll in the ferry that capsized in Lake Victoria on Thursday rose to 209 as more bodies were expected to be pulled off one of Africa's great lakes.
Isack Kamwelwe, the Minister for Works, Transport and Communications, said more bodies could be recovered as rescue and recovery operations continued.
Relatives have started identifying bodies of their loved ones, Kamwelwe told a news conference at Ukara Islet, the scene of the grisly marine accident.
