Five European divers missing in Indonesia

Five scuba divers from Britain, France and Sweden have been missing for more than a day in seas off remote islands in Indonesia after being swept away in a current, police said Friday.

The divers - two British women and a British man, a Swedish woman and a French man - disappeared Thursday in the treacherous waters of the Komodo National Park in the Nusa Tenggara islands east of Bali, police said.

"A rescue team from the Indonesian police and navy conducted a search this morning for the five missing foreigners but there has been no result so far," Manggarai Barat district police chief Butje Hello said.

The Komodo National Park is a popular diving destination which is well known for spectacular coral and fishlife as well as strong currents.
