A fishing trawler caught fire off Dokdo in the East Sea on Tuesday morning, leaving two sailors dead and four others missing.  Of the 10 crewmen aboard the 29-ton boat, six were rescued by patrolling Coast Guard officers, but two died of their injuries. Two Koreans and two Vietnamese are missing.  Six naval vessels and six planes are searching for the missing sailors, but high waves have hampered their efforts.
