Dozens feared dead after South Korea boat accident

(Vatican Radio) More than 50 fishermen are still missing one day after their ship sank amid high waves in the freezing waters off the western Bering Sea coast, say South Korean officials.

Officials rescued seven crew members and recovered one body from Monday’s accident, but weather and water conditions complicated the search for the others.

An official says the crew included 35 Indonesians, 13 Filipinos, 11 South Koreans and one Russian inspector.
