The Associated Press

BARI, Italy (AP) Greece's Coast Guard says the operation to collect survivors from the Greek ferry that caught fire off Albania has been completed, and that 432 people have been rescued.

Coast Guard spokesman Nikos Lagadianos said those rescued included passengers and crew, and that the figures came from Italian authorities who are in charge of the rescue operation.

He said specialist Italian coast guard teams were continuing to search the interior of the ferry, the Norman Atlantic, which caught fire Sunday morning with hundreds of people on board.

Five Greek helicopters, a Greek frigate and another ship are still in the area.
