15 More Survivors of Indonesian Ferry Accident Found

A fishing vessel picked up 15 more survivors from an Indonesian ferry that sank last week with more than 600 people on board, a navy spokesman said Thursday.

Lt. Col. Tony Syaiful said the 15 were well and resting in a health clinic on a small island in the Java sea.

The rescue Thursday brings the number of survivors in the disaster to nearly 220, according to rescue officials and a count by The Associated Press.
