Rescuers search for 7 missing in capsizing
TIJUANA — Mexican rescuers were scouring the Gulf of California on Tuesday for seven U.S. tourists whose fishing boat capsized two days ago, saying they were extending their search because the missing tourists could still be alive in the warm, calm waters.
One American has been confirmed dead in the accident, which came after a sudden storm upended the boat before dawn Sunday, spilling dozens of tourists and crew members into the water. The identity of the dead man was not released.
By early Monday, 19 of the tourists and all 16 crew members had been picked up by the navy or fishing boats after having clung to coolers, rescue rings and life vests for more than 16 hours.
Court orders release of U.S. Gaza boat captain
PIRAEUS — A Greek court on Tuesday released the U.S. captain of a boat aiming to breach Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip, four days after arresting him for trying to set sail from Greece without permission.
John Klusmire, captain of the Audacity of Hope, had attempted to leave a port near Piraeus on Friday in defiance of a Greek ban on the flotilla of boats leaving port.
He still faces trial at a later date.
