Border Guards Drown

MOSCOW -- Three border guards drowned during an exercise that required them to cross a body of water carrying a heavy load of combat gear, a news report said Thursday.

The guards were training at a base in the village of Sertolovo outside St. Petersburg, Interfax quoted the northwest border guard department press service as saying.

The incident was being investigated.
