The Coast Guard announced Saturday that the United States is sending a heavy icebreaker to help free a Russian ship and a Chinese icebreaker gripped by Antarctic ice. The Polar Star is responding to a request for assistance from Australian authorities as well as from the Russian and Chinese governments. A Chinese icebreaker that helped rescue 52 passengers from a Russian ship stranded in Antarctic ice found itself stuck in heavy ice on Friday.
