U.S. Navy divers have retrieved the diplomatic pouches carried by an American courier who was killed in the crash of a Gulf Air jet. The divers found the "diplomatic cargo" in the shallow waters off Bahrain, said Cmdr. Jeff Gradeck, spokesman for the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, which is based in Bahrain. The courier, Seth J. Foti, 31, of Browntown, Va., was the only American aboard the Gulf Air jet when it crashed into the sea Wednesday.
