Dutch Call Off Search For 6 Missing Crewmen.
Rescuers have called off search efforts for six missing crewmen from a cargo ship that sank in the North Sea.
The ship, carrying a cargo of cars, sank yesterday after colliding with another vessel in international waters off the southern coast of the Netherlands. The presumed death toll is 11 -- including five bodies that have been found so far. Thirteen members of the 24-man crew were rescued.
Today, amid icy conditions, the search helicopters, planes and coast guard ships were called back to their bases.
