Salvage workers refloated a ferry that sank in rough seas off South Korea's west coast a week ago and found 61 more bodies inside, bringing the death toll to 257, Reuter reports from Seoul. State television said the ferry, licensed to carry 207 passengers, was believed to have had more than 360 people on board when it capsized and sank last Sunday.
