MISSING: 35 migrants feared dead after boat sank

A DUTCH military submarine has recovered the bodies of three people off the coast of Malaga.

The two women and a man are believed be three of the 35 migrants missing since their boat sank on October 29.

The bodies were in an advanced state of decomposition and found floating in the sea 14 miles to the south of Malaga on Tuesday.

The three bodies have not been identified, but they are believed to be sub-Saharan extraction.

The Salvamento Maritimo resumed its search for further bodies on Wednesday.
