Fisherman's body found Tearful farewell to Hindu guru

The body of a fisherman missing from a trawler off Cork has been recovered.

The man, in his 40s and believed to be from Clogherhead, Co Louth, disappeared yesterday evening while the boat was in Castletownbere.

It is understood the vessel, with several crew, had pulled in to the harbour overnight to take on supplies.

RNLI crews searched the fishing port with a diving team also taking to the water.

His remains were found by a crew from Castletownbere RNLI.



Tearful farewell to Hindu guru

Thousands of tearful devotees, including top politicians, gathered today for the funeral of Sathya Sai Baba, one of India's best-known Hindu ascetics revered as a divine incarnation with miraculous healing powers.

The 84-year-old guru's death has triggered an outpouring of grief from followers, who included politicians, film stars, athletes and industrialists.

Hindus usually cremate their dead, but infants and people considered pure and saintly are often buried.
