Cornish Divers arrested on treasure hunt suspicion

From the BBC:

A team of Cornish commercial divers could be facing extradition accused of plundering shipwrecks of the Spanish coast.

It was originally claimed that the team was illegally diving for gold and diamonds on a wreck off Galicia on the north west coast of Spain.

Now they face charges of theft and damaging Spanish heritage and up to six years in jail.

Peter Devlin, Malcolm Cubin, and Steve Russ deny the charges.

The Spanish authorities arrested the three commercial divers after they dived on the wrecked Dutch ship Friesland in 2002.
