#AceWorldNews – UPDATE: – SOUTH KOREA – Dec.03 – Fishermen have recovered 11 more bodies from the western Bering Sea Wednesday in the area where a South Korean fishing ship sank earlier this week, AP said.

Coast guard helicopters from Russia and the US and at least five fishing ships were searching for the more than 50 missing people on board the trawler.

One fisherman’s body was recovered Monday and seven fishermen were rescued.

“Italian Marines won’t `Face Death Penalty’ over `Fishermen Killing’ as India will not invoke the Anti-Piracy Law”

#AceWorldNews says India acceded to Italy’s request, saying on Friday it won’t invoke an anti-piracy law carrying the death penalty in the trial of two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen.

The government decided against invoking the law against the marines, who are awaiting trial in India, AP reported, citing a Home Ministry official.

The Italians were on anti-pirate duty aboard a cargo ship in 2012, when they fired at the fishermen on an Indian boat.

The marines said they mistook the fishermen for pirates.
