South Korean Vessel Sinks near Antarctica

A South Korean fishing trawler sank Monday near Antarctica and at least five crew members were killed. Seventeen are still missing and 20 had been rescued.
The fishing trawler sank around 6:30 a.m. about 1,000 miles north of Ross Island and about 2,600 miles south of New Zealand, the New York Times said.
New Zealand rescue officials said there was no immediate cause of the sinking and that a distress call had not been placed, the New York Times said.
The ship was based in Busan and carried a crew of 42, the Wall Street Journal said.
