SKorean fishing boat apparently sinks; 9 missing

The Coast Guard says a South Korean fishing boat that joined the search for a navy ship that sank with 46 sailors aboard last week has disappeared.
Coast Guard said Saturday it was searching for the 99-ton boat with seven South Korean and two Indonesian crew members on board. Contact with the boat was lost late Friday near the maritime border with North Korea.
The 1,200-ton navy ship went down following an explosion on March 26 during a routine patrol. Fifty-eight crew members, including the captain, were rescued.
No major progress has been made in locating the 46 missing sailors.
