Iran ship disaster - life pod found
Tehran - Iranian officials were hoping on Saturday to find six survivors inside a life pod recovered from an oil services ship that sank in the Gulf, leaving seven others missing and feared dead, state television reported.
Sixty of the 73 people on the ill-fated vessel were rescued on Thursday by naval and civilian boats.
The life pod from the ship - which was said to be watertight and contain a 48-hour supply of oxygen - was hauled to the surface and was headed to shore, where it would be opened.
State television said it was believed at least six of the ship's occupants made it into the pod.
