BEIJING (Reuters) - The death toll from a Chinese cruise ship which capsized during a storm in the Yangtze River has reached 154, with more than 200 still missing, state media said on Saturday. Only 14 survivors, one of them the captain, have been found after the ship carrying 456 overturned in a freak tornado on Monday night. Rescuers are searching the cabin of the ship, which was raised from the river bed on Friday, looking for more bodies, the official People's Daily wrote on its microblog.
