Little hope to find missing airmen

MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) - The U.S. Navy says it has suspended the search for two missing airmen after a helicopter crash in the Red Sea. Three other crew members were rescued earlier. A Navy statement Monday said officials determined the chance of survival was now considered "extremely unlikely" following Sunday's crash. The MH-60S Knighthawk went down in the central Red Sea while operating with the destroyer USS William P. Lawrence. The names of the missing airmen were not immediately released. The Bahrain-based 5th Fleet says aircraft and vessels took part in the search. It said the crash was under investigation, but no hostile action was involved.
