Search for 7 seamen in Atlantic ends


FORT-DE-FRANCE: An operation to find seven seamen missing since their vessel sank off Martinique will end anytime as no bodies have been found for several days, authorities said Saturday. The Luxembourg-flagged Bourbon Rhode ran into difficulty some 1,200 nautical miles from the French Caribbean island on September 26 as it sailed into hurricane Lorenzo, and was later confirmed to have sunk. Three crew members who had made their way onto a lifeboat were rescued two days later. AFP
