Salvage and rescue personnel have bowed their heads as ship horns blared in tribute to the victims of China's worst shipping disaster in nearly seven decades, after the death toll reached 431.

The solemn ceremony was held in remembrance of those who died and are still missing after the Eastern Star cruise ship carrying 456 people capsized in a storm late on Monday on the Yangtze River.
Officials on Sunday announced the death toll had risen to 431, with another 11 people still missing.
Only 14 survivors have been confirmed out of all those aboard, who were mostly tourists aged over 60.

Число жертв крушения в реке Янцзы судна «Звезда Востока» увеличилось до 431 человека.
Сегодня вблизи теплохода прошла поминальная служба с участием родных погибших.
На данный момент пропавшими без вести числятся 11 человек.
Выжить в результате трагедии удалось 14 пассажирам, в основном это были пассажиры в возрасте старше шестидесяти, туристы.
