The Japan Coast Guard continued searching Saturday in the East China Sea for two fishermen whose trawler capsized in heavy seas, after rescuing four other crew members in shark-infested waters.

The coast guard found the 30-ton trawler Kasuga Maru overturned off Amami-Oshima Island at around 6:35 p.m. Friday, but initially found no trace of the six crew members, JCG sources said.
