A church worker looking after survivors of a ferry disaster in Papua New Guinea says many are dealing with stomach pain after swallowing oily seawater.
The MV Rabaul Queen sank in rough seas near the end of a journey from the island of New Britain to Lae on the mainland on 2 February.
Angela Worealevi, of the Catholic Diocese in Lae, says her centre is housing 66 survivors, 35 of whom are students.
She says a number of them are coming to terms with the loss of a parent and many are also dealing with injuries including cuts and stomach pain after ingesting fouled water.
It is now feared about 320 people lost their lives in the sinking - a big increase on the 100 originally thought to have died.
