Rescuers have recovered 10 more bodies in rough seas off Pakistan's biggest city Karachi as the search for a group of bathers who drowned earlier this week resumed Friday, officials said.The authorities said the total number of corpses taken from the sea has now reached 31 . The bathers were among thousands who had taken to the beaches to celebrate the Eid-al-Fitr holiday, which began on Tuesday and continues until Friday."We have pulled out more dead bodies from the sea and the total number of the people who died after drowning in the sea has now reached 31," Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui, Karachi's top administrator told AFP. Officials said they could not rule out finding further bodies in the water. Wednesday, senior police officer Ibadat Nisar said cops had discovered three bodies washed up at the upscale Clifton beach Wednesday evening, which prompted a wider search operation that was suspended overnight and then resumed Thursday.
