NAHA, Japan — Two anglers who drifted for 14 hours in the sea off Okinawa's main island after their boat overturned were rescued Sunday as personnel aboard a U.S. military transport ship spotted them, Japan Coast Guard officials said.

A tugboat towing the break-bulk ship Cape Jacob rescued Hiroshi Asato, 40, and Seiichiro Onna, 26, both carpenters from the city of Uruma, Okinawa Prefecture, at around 9:50 a.m. after crew members aboard the U.S. vessel found them drifting just outside Kin Bay on the Pacific side of the island, they said.
