Divers found over a dozen bodies after they entered the ferry for the first time early on Sunday. More than 250 people are still missing, most of them high school students on a trip.

Another Meteor Caught on Russian Dashcams

A suspected meteorite explosion has been recorded on dashcams in the northwestern Russian city of Murmansk on Saturday, NBC News reported. The fireball explosion looked much like the meteor that lit up the sky over Chelyabinsk in Siberia last year, but the impact of Saturday's blast wasn't nearly as dramatic. The Chelyabinsk meteor blew out windows and injured 1,200 people. No sound of an explosion was heard from Saturday's meteor, although it was sighted from Murmansk as well as other cities on Russia's Kola Peninsula, Gazeta.ru reported. Read »
