MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) _ Officials in Bahrain say they've

recovered the body of another victim of last week's tragic pleasure

cruise.

They say the search continues for the body of a Philippine

woman. She's believed to be among the estimated 58 people killed

when the vessel turned over during a dinner cruise.

Several companies involved in the construction of Bahrain's

World Trade Center were having a party aboard the boat. The small

craft tipped over during a turn.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said 130 people were believed to

have been on board.
