A massive rescue operation was launched off Sakhalin island in Russia’s Far East after hundreds of fishermen became stranded on an ice flow.
All 675 were eventually brought to safety. The men had got into difficulty when the ice flow they were fishing from drifted about half a kilometre into clear water.
