Missing sailor found dead in Caspian Sea

Rescuers in the Caspian Sea have found the body of a man thought to be a sailor from a missing Russian ship. The discovery was made as search teams continue to look for eight men still unaccounted for after recent storms in the area.

Three other sailors have been rescued.  They have been brought to dry land and are being examined by doctors.
All three men are said to be feeling well, despite spending more than a week on a raft in the open sea.
The cargo vessel with twelve people on board went missing on Saturday, but radio contact with the ship was lost more than a week ago.
Preliminary reports say the ship sank during a storm.
Bound for Iran, it was carrying more than two tonnes of steel from the southern Russian port of Astrakhan.
