The search for El Faro was suspended at sunset tonight. The US Coast Guard is ending its search for survivors from a cargo ship believed to have sunk in a fierce hurricane near the Bahamas last week.

The search for the El Faro, which is Spanish for The Lighthouse and its 33 crew-members including five Polish sailors turned up one body, an oil slick and a variety of debris, including life jackets and cargo boxes. US Coast Guard officials fear there there was little chance of finding any survivors.
