Lebanon: Syrian migrants mourn loss of relatives to boat tragedy

The number of bodies found after a migrant boat sank off the coast of Syria has risen to 104.
At least 30 still need to be identified.
Many of the passengers were Syrians. Some of their families have told Al Jazeera they were not able to bury their dead because Syrian authorities prevented bodies from being taken across frontlines or returned to Lebanon.
