Doctors at the general hospital in the coastal town of Meljine say one of the sailors remains in life-threatening condition after a suspected poisoning late Friday, apparently by fuel fumes.

 

Police saying an investigation is underway but have released no details. Local media reported the sailors were from Sri Lanka, Egypt and India.
