A barge carrying nearly 200 oil-pipeline workers capsized and sank Thursday in a typhoon in the South China Sea, killing at least 16 people, rescue workers said. Rescuers battling gale-force winds had recovered 12 bodies by early today, but they said time was running out to find survivors. Among 11 people still missing were four divers, believed to be three Britons and a New Zealander, who were dragged to the bottom of the sea inside a diving chamber attached to the barge.
