Storm Victims Found

ANKARA () -- The Turkish navy recovered the bodies of four crew members of a Russian freighter which sank in heavy storms in the Black Sea, a port official said Sunday.


Rescuers were still searching for six other sailors from the freighter Syrve which went down Friday night off the Turkish town of Kaynarca.


A port official in Eregli, northwest of Ankara, said the chance of finding the remaining six alive was slim.


Fifteen crew members were saved when their lifeboat reached land Saturday but one sailor in the boat died.
