Two fishermen from China missing off Bahamas

Nassau: A search is on off the Bahamas for two missing fishermen from China who apparently got lost in rough weather.

A spokeswoman for the Royal Bahamas Police Force says the two missing men were accompanied by two others in a kayak when the weather turned bad.

Spokeswoman Chrislyn Skippings says the two other men decided to try and swim back to shore and were rescued.

US Coast Guard and officials from the nearby Turks and Caicos Islands were assisting Bahamian authorities on Monday in the search for the two men who stayed with the boat.
