Fire forces crew to abandon South Korean trawler off Sierra Leone coast
A fire on board a South Korean trawler fishing off the coast of Sierra Leone forced the crew to abandon ship, fleeing onto boats that came to their rescue, its captain told Reuters on Monday. The fire on the 70-foot (21-metre) Osito 89 broke out in the engine room at 0400 GMT on Sunday about five nautical miles off the town of Kent, south of the Sierra Leonean capital Freetown. "The fire became wild as it spread into the captain's bridge so I had no alternative but to send an SOS to our company's office," Captain Seak Kim Che said. Two South Koreans, two Chinese and two Indonesian fishermen were rescued, while the 18 Sierra Leonean fishermen who also worked on the ship were not on board at the time, he said.

Gordon Brown steps up bid to keep Scotland in UK
News ImageBy Belinda Goldsmith LONDON (Reuters) - Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is stepping up his efforts to stop Scotland leaving the United Kingdom as opinion polls show growing support for independence. Brown, a Scot, will on Tuesday make his first speech in support of the cross-party Better Together campaign, warning Scots of a possible deficit in pension funds if they opt out of the 307-year old union in a September 18 referendum. Polls show growing support for independence with the gap between the two sides narrowing to just a few percentage points after a split seemed unattainable a year ago. Brown, a former Labour leader who has kept a low profile since losing the 2010 general election, said he will set out the case for why Scotland should stay in the United Kingdom in a speech at Glasgow University.

Rodriguez upbeat, Schleck downcast for Ardennes Classics
News ImageLiege (Belgium) (AFP) - Specialist puncheur Joaquim Rodriguez is feeling positive for the remainder of the Ardennes Classics despite crashing out of the Amstel Gold Race. But it wasn't such good news for former Tour de France winner Andy Schleck, who hurt his knee in the same incident. Spaniard Rodriguez, known as Purito, crashed out of Sunday's race after going down about 80km into the first of the three Ardennes Classics. But Rodriguez took to Twitter to say he expects to race both the Fleche Wallonne and Liege-Bastogne-Liege races this week and, more importantly, that he will be fully fit for next month's Giro d'Italia.
