By Elizabeth Kameo FOUR bodies have been retrieved from the Karuma bridge on River Nile as the search for missing passengers on a bus that crashed there on Thursday continued. Police spokesman Eric Naigambi yesterday said the rescue team had recovered three bodies in addition to one which was recovered on Thursday. He said the body of Michael Adrapi, son of Andrea Afidra of Awindri, Arua, had been found. Naigambi said the second unidentified body had floated downstream to Wangchol fishing village about 100km away from Paraa. The third, which was also taken to Kiryandongho Hospital, is that of a boy believed to be below 12 years, Naigambi added. This brings to 69 the number of passengers on the ill-fated Contour bus. Naigambi said by last night only three of the 65 survivors were still admitted to Atapara Hospital, Apac. "We are looking for people whose fate we don't know. Sixty-six people are accounted for with 64 survivors, two deaths and four missing if we go by the number on the passenger list given to us by Contour offices," he said. Only one passenger is unaccounted for," he said. "If there were any excess passengers, then there are still more bodies in the river," he said. He said the crane, which would be used to pull the wreckage out of the water, had been delivered at Karuma. Ends
