Saudi coastguards have found the bodies of three Asian workers at sea after they went missing when an offshore platform of Saudi Aramco sunk, officials said.

“They were all found. We found two of them late yesterday and another one this morning,” Eastern Province coastguard spokesman Col. Khaled Al-Arqubi said.

Aramco confirmed in a statement that the bodies of three missing crew members — two Indians and a Bangladeshi — had been found.

The platform sunk Friday as it was being used to carry out maintenance work at an oil well in Safaniya, the world’s largest offshore oilfield about 265 km north of Dhahran.
