Sweden says four passenger ferries carrying more than a thousand people are stuck in ice in the Baltic Sea. The Swedish Maritime Administration says they've been trapped for hours off the coast of Sweden but there are no plans to evacuate. Helicopters and military hovercraft are on stanby in case people need to be removed. Two other ferries that were stuck in the ice broke free earlier on Thursday.
