Search for Russian rafter resumes

Rescuers have resumed the search for the sixth and last Russian tourist, Dmitry Tishchenko, lost during a rafting trip in China. The operation had to be halted for three days due to bad weather.

Now, rescuers will search for the missing man in the area where one of his fellow rafters was found earlier.

Earlier, rescuers found the bodies of three of the six men. Two others were found alive.

Russian media reports say China is demanding that relatives of the dead pay 22,000 euros for the time the rafters' bodies were kept in the country.
