A third body has been found in the search for the trawlermen missing since the fishing boat Tit Bonhomme sank in Glandore Bay, Co Cork, last Sunday.

The body was that of 32-year-old Egyptian crewman Wael Mohammed. It was discovered by a group of local divers at around 9.45am today, close to the wreck of the trawler.

The skipper of the trawler, Michael Hayes, 52, and crewman Saied Ali Eldin, 24, are still missing.

Six men were on board when the boat went down as it was returning to shore early last Sunday morning.

Mr Mohammed's brother Abdul survived and the bodies of Kevin Kershaw and Attia Shaban were recovered last Thursday.
