CBImages 1

Relatives of passengers believed to be aboard a cruise ship which sank await fresh information at a river Station in Kazan, about 450 miles (750 kilometers) east of Moscow, Russia, Monday, July 11, 2011, on the Volga River, in central Russia. Rescuers scoured the wide waters of a Volga River reservoir on Monday, searching with dimming hopes for survivors after an aged, overloaded cruise ship sank amid wind and rain. Nine people were confirmed dead, but more than 90 remained missing. Exactly how many people were aboard the two-deck Bulgaria when it set off for a cruise on Sunday remains unclear but it was certain to be carrying more than its licensed maximum. Officials say anywhere from 185 to 196 people were aboard the ship that should have carried no more than 120. (AP Photo/Misha Japaridze)
