Missing sailor found dead in Caspian Sea
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.
