Bangladesh's coast guard has found the bodies of six fishermen who went missing in the bay of Bengal after a storm hit the country's southeastern coast, police said Monday. Coast guard officials were still hunting for another 20 fishermen missing since the storm struck Saturday. "Six bodies were washed ashore late Saturday at Maheshkhali island off Cox's Bazar," a police officer in the southeastern town said. He said several boats capsized in the storm and that 60 fishermen had been rescued. The meteorological office had warned fishermen to avoid going to sea because of high waves
