A huge cargo ship belonging to South Korean, which had 24 people on board, has gone missing in the South Atlantic, about 2,500 kilometres (1,500 miles) from shore

South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that two Filipino sailors found on a life raft were rescued,  but other lifeboats and rafts found in the area were empty,.

On Friday, a crew member sent a text saying the 312m-long (1024ft) Stellar Daisy freighter was taking on water.

The Uruguayan navy alerted merchant ships in the area, which began a search. A navy spokesman said they had reported a strong smell of fuel.

The two people rescued had been found by commercial ships aiding the search, Yonhap news agency said.

A search operation is continuing for the 22 people and South Korea requests assistance in the search from Brazil and Uruguay.
