The number of rescued passengers and crewmen stood at 750. Underwater retrieval operations for passengers trapped inside MV St Thomas Aquinas which sank off Talisay city in Cebu last Friday were again hampered by inclement weather, according to the military sources.

Gregory Gerald Fabic, navy spokesman, said divers resumed their efforts at around 5:30 am on Tuesday but they suspended it at around 10 am owing to bad weather.
