The sun sets as crews continue searching for bodies onboard a South Korea ferry that sank nearly a week ago.

The official death toll surpassed 100 early on Tuesday — but nearly 200 bodies are still believed to be trapped inside.

The ferry carrying 476 people sank off South Korea's southern coast on April 16.
