Rescue teams in the Democratic Republic of the Congo say they are struggling to reach the bodies of those who were trapped in an overcrowded boat and drowned when it capsized.
At least 75 people are known to have drowned when the vessel sank in the Congo River on Sunday night and about half of the 700 passengers made it to shore.
Hundreds are still missing.
