US: Maryland’s Mallows Bay becomes wartime shipwreck sanctuary

Protecting a time capsule, the world’s largest collection of wartime shipwrecks is labelled a sanctuary by the US.

    In the United States, part of a river containing the world's largest collection of World War I shipwrecks has been granted special protection.

    Conservationists working in Mallows Bay in the state of Maryland say they have found another use for what they call the "ghost fleet".
