INTERNATIONAL NEWS - Rescuers found four bodies Sunday, including that of the captain of an Argentine cargo ship, one day after it collided with a Paraguayan tug boat and sank, with more feared dead.
Divers and coast guard personnel backed by a helicopter worked on the operation but were not optimistic about finding survivors among the three people still missing.
"We found the body of the ship's captain. He was found in a hallway of the vessel, which was submerged in six meters (20 feet) of water," said Sergio Gaetan, the local official who is heading the search and rescue operation.
The collision Saturday at 4:00 am (0700 GMT) near the northeastern city of Zarate in Argentina came at the 102-kilometer (63-mile) mark of the Parana River, which connects Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
