Rescue boats have found 177 survivors from a ferry that sunk off Indonesia's main island of Java, state news agency Antara reported Sunday, though more than 460 people were either dead or missing. A fleet of navy ships, fishing boats and aircraft has been scouring a large section of the central Indonesian coastline since the Senopati Nusantara capsized around midnight Friday after being pounded by heavy waves for 10 hours.
