US navy discovers wreckage believed to be cargo ship El Faro

Los Angeles: Wreckage believed to be of the cargo ship El Faro, which was lost off the Bahamas along with its 33 crew during Hurricane Joaquin, was discovered on Saturday, US officials said.

El Faro disappeared on 1 October en route from Jacksonville, Florida, to Puerto Rico in the worst cargo shipping disaster involving a US-flagged vessel since 1983, after the captain reported a “hull breach” and said a hatch had blown open.
