DHAKA | Re­cov­ery work­ers on Wed­nes­day raised the wreck­age of a ferry that cap­sized on a river in Bangladesh while car­ry­ing about 200 peo­ple, hop­ing this would re­veal the fate of dozens of pas­sen­gers still miss­ing.

The death toll rose to 114, and res­cuers con­tin­ued to search for more bod­ies.

The ferry col­lided with a cargo boat and cap­sized in the dark­ness of Tues­day morn­ing, send­ing hun­dreds of peo­ple into the Meghna River, just south of the cap­i­tal, Dhaka.
