In Tonga, a Memorial Service will be held at sea today over the location of the Princess Ashika.

It's been nearly three weeks since the vessel went down, claiming up to 74 lives.

A small flotilla of vessels, which left Nukualofa early this morning, are now at the site where the Service will take place.

Aboard the vessels are the relatives of those still missing, survivors, members of the royal family, Tonga's prime minister Dr Feleti Sevele and other officials.
