Rescue workers were seen operating at the scene on the Tigris river, where a tourist ferry capsized on March 21, killing at least 93 people with dozens still missing, in Mosul on Tuesday.
Members of rescue teams were seen jumping into the water from boats and searching the area for the bodies of the victims from the disaster.
The ferry was transporting people from the river bank to a small island called Umm al-Rabeein.
The Iraq Civil Defense believe the boat was overcrowded, running at twice the permitted capacity.
