Dozens of people have died after a crowded pleasure boat capsized off the coast of Bahrain. As the injured were taken to hospital, rescue workers recovered the bodies of victims.
Bahraini Prime Minister Sheik Khalifa Bin Salman al-Khalifa (2nd right) went to the scene before visiting victims in hospital.
Meanwhile, many Bahrainis continued the grim search for bodies through the small hours of the night.
US embassy staff were among those waiting for news of survivors at the Salmaniya medical centre in the Bahraini capital, Manama.
At first light, teams of rescuers were able to examine the debris more clearly.
Meanwhile divers continued to search the wreckage which teams had hauled near to the shore.
A cooler was among the items recovered from the wreckage of the dhow, which capsized during an evening dinner cruise.
Some foreign survivors left hospital on Friday after receiving first aid treatment.
