Divers in South Korea have finally entered a submerged, capsized passenger ferry that sank Wednesday, recovering 56 victims so far. Strong currents and murky water had delayed the efforts. But nearly 250 victims are still trapped on board, most of them high school students, and the death toll continues to rise. VOA's Daniel Schearf reports from Jindo in southern South Korea.
