The Dutch coastguard said on Thursday it was searching for seven missing crew members of the cargo ship which collided with the Corvus J, a Cyprus-flagged container ship, and sank in the North Sea the previous evening, killing four people. The coastguard said 13 people have already been rescued, but that the search was being hampered by strong winds and snow which limited visibility. REUTERS/Ian Johnston/FleetMon.com/Handout
