AIR PIC
In Philippines, rescuers retrieved more bodies from rough seas taking the death toll to 25 in the boats capsize incident yesterday. Three ferry boats capsized after being buffeted by fierce wind and waves off two central provinces. Six are still missing. 

Regional police spokesman Joem Javier said the dead were mostly passengers of two ferries that flipped over off Guimaras and Iloilo provinces. Fifty-five other passengers and crew were rescued. He said that a third ferry, which was not carrying any passenger, also capsized in the Iloilo Strait but its four crewmen survived.

Forecasters have warned of heavy monsoon rains, thunderstorms and rain-triggered landslides amid a tropical depression more than 1,000 kilometers off the country's eastern coast.
