Three divers still missing in French Polynesia

2:07 pm on 19 September 2006

There is still no sign of three divers in French Polynesia who went missing near Tahiti last week.

The three were at the entrance of the port of Papeete where they were to dive to a depth of 70 metres when they disappeared.

Rescue efforts have been unsuccessful and a search to a depth of 130 meters failed to find any trace of the three.

They were all very experienced, with one of them a retired army diver.
