Recovery teams to raise sunken Volger boat


Russian recovery teams are set to raise the sunken tourist boat from the Volger River in which 114 people died.

Two floating cranes have arrived at the site, 80 kilometers south of the city of Kazan. Officials say the raising process is likely to take place on Sunday or Monday.

The vessel, which was carrying 208 passengers – nearly double the number of people it was designed for – sunk last Sunday.

Seventy-nine people were rescued.
