Four crew have members died and seven were still missing in the North Sea, after a cargo ship collided with another vessel and sank off the Dutch coast, rescuers said.
"We can confirm that four bodies have been found, along with 13 people rescued alive," said Coast Guard spokesman Marcel Oldenburger.
He said a massive air and sea rescue operation would continue through the night in an effort to find the remaining seven sailors.
