At least 12 people have drowned after a ferry sank in the Amazon River near Peru's border with Colombia, but officials warned the toll would likely rise when recovery efforts restart at dawn Thursday. The ship Camila carrying more than 140 passengers from the river port city of Iquitos in northwest Peru sank early Wednesday morning, and the toll rose steadily through the day as bodies were recovered from the boat and river. "The death toll rose from five to 12, but tomorrow there could be more deaths (recorded) because there are still many missing," Robert Falcon, head of the region's civil defense force, told reporters.
