Over 40 people missing in ship sink south of Yemen
At least 40 people, including women and children, are missing after a boat sank in the Arabian Sea about 350km (190 nautical miles) south of Yemen, the BBC wrote.
It added, the cargo vessel had about 60 people on board when it disappeared while sailing from the eastern province of Hadramawt to the remote island of Socotra.
The government says the ship sank five days ago, but it appears that was only confirmed on Tuesday, according to the BBC.
At least 19 people had been rescued by Wednesday morning, a minister said, said the BBC, adding that the cause of the sinking was not immediately clear.
