Border Guard Drowns




MOSCOW -- Rescue boats recovered the body of a border guard and were searching for eight others missing after a supply barge capsized and sank in the Far East.


Border guard officials said four ships were taking part in the search, but aircraft could not be used because of bad weather in the area.


Two members of the 11-man crew were rescued when the barge sank Sunday and were hospitalized in stable condition, according to a Federal Border Guard spokesman in Moscow. The barge was carrying fuel, coal and food to a border guard base.
