Two bodies found; believed to be crew of Bangladeshi ship

Two bodies have been retrieved from the Andaman Sea near Krabi province. They are suspected to be members of the missing crew of the Bangladesh-registered MV Hope cargo ship that capsized yesterday.

The Third Naval Area Command said however that as the bodies were not yet able to be identified, it cannot be officially stated that they were members of the missing 11-man crew.

The bodies were taken aboard the HTMS Pattani, an offshore patrol vessel, for autopsy.

Authorities are still searching for the other missing crew by water and by air, but strong waves are an obstacle.

Another meeting of the search and rescue team is being held this evening. The Bangladeshi ambassador and consul to Thailand are scheduled to attend the meeting at the Third Naval Area Command.
