Stuck Antarctic ship awaiting rescue

A rescue mission is underway in Antarctica to reach a group of scientists and tourists, whose ship has been trapped in dense pack ice since Tuesday.

Bad weather is hampering a Chinese icebreaker, which is making slow progress towards the Russian registered vessel that has more than 70 people on board.
