Spain: 2 drown as Portuguese fishing boat sinks

MADRID (AP) — Spain's marine rescue service says two fishermen have died and six others are missing after a Portuguese vessel ran aground off the northern Spanish coast.

The service says the Santa Ana partially sank early Monday after hitting rocks on a tiny island less than three kilometers (two miles) off the coast from the northern Cabo Penas headland. A statement said one Spanish crew member had been rescued by another fishing boat.

The marine service and coastal guards have deployed two helicopters and several vessels to search for survivors. The crew included five Spaniards, two Portuguese and two Indonesians.
