Thai rescuers pulled 33 bodies from waters off the coast of the holiday island of Phuket on Friday after a tourist boat went down in heavy seas with dozens of Chinese passengers on board.

Many of the dead were found drifting face down in the water, still wearing life jackets, several kilometres (miles) from where the Phoenix sank after being hit by five-metre (15-foot) high waves in a storm on Thursday evening.

The boat was carrying 105 passengers, mostly Chinese tourists, when it sank. At least 33 died, while 49 have survived and 23 are still missing.
