The death toll in a ferry accident in Indonesia last week has risen to 63. Another 15 people remain missing, as rescue efforts continue.

The Authorities said another 40 bodies were found on Thursday.

On December 19th, a ferry carrying 118 passengers and crew ran into trouble in the Gulf of Boni in Sulawesi province in eastern Indonesia. It was left stranded in the rough seas overnight as high winds kept rescuers away.
