The death toll from an explosion and subsequent
The death toll from an explosion and subsequent fire on a tanker under repair at a Greek shipyard has risen to eight people, the country's merchant marine ministry said Friday.

Rescuers recovered three bodies Friday after gaining access to hard-to-reach sections of the tanker. They had been searching the vessel since the fire was extinguished.

Another four people were hospitalized with injuries from Thursday's explosion in Perama, 20 km (12 miles) west of the Greek capital, Athens.

The ministry said two people had been arrested on suspicion of violating welding rules. Greek media said workers in Perama were planning a strike to demand better work conditions.
