Report: 'No hope' for more survivors after ship collision

Rescuers have given up hope of finding any more survivors from a cargo ship that sank in the North Sea off the Dutch coast, saying they are searching for the bodies of six crewmen still missing, according to the Associated Press.

The presumed death toll has now reached 11, after four bodies were found yesterday and 13 survivors were rescued. Peter Westenburg, of the Dutch Coast Guard, said:

Given the water temperature and the amount of time that's passed, we don't have any hope for more survivors.
