Rescue teams are continuing to sweep the area where a cargo ship carrying around 700 tons of gold ore sank last month. The ship was found by scuba divers in the Okhotsk Sea in Russia’s Far East.
Scuba divers discovered the wreck of the Amurskaya freighter lying on its port side on the seabed some 25 meters deep.
The rescuers did not find lifeboats or the bodies of crewmembers, indicating that the ship’s crew may have escaped before
