· Japanese scuba divers missing off Bali 

Four Japanese scuba divers have been found alive in waters off the Indonesian resort island of Bali three days after going missing.

“Four divers were found alive. They were found by fishermen around 3.30pm (1830 AEDT),” said local police chief Nyoman Suarsika.

The four were among seven Japanese divers, all women, who went missing on Friday.

“They are now being rescued and taken to Sanur,” he added, referring to a beach area of southern Bali popular with tourists.

He said they were found some 300 metres from the coast of Nusa Penida, a small island southeast of Bali.

Around 100 people have been searching since the five tourists and two instructors went missing during their third dive of the day from the island of Nusa Lembongan, next to Penida.
