Search continues for missing crew off Sabah

Kuala Lumpur: Authorities in Malaysia continue to comb through the rough seas off Lahad Datu on the east coast of Sabah in the seemingly increasingly vain attempt to find and rescue six crewmembers of a ship that sank there yesterday.

Three crewmembers of the Bounty Ferry were picked up yesterday. The ship went down close to the maritime border with the Philippines.  [14/01/14]
