WASHINGTON (AFP) - Hundreds of artefacts linked to the doomed luxury liner Titanic will be sold online this month and could fetch as much as a million dollars, Boston-based auction house RR said on Thursday.

RR, specializing in documents, manuscripts and historic artefacts, said it will put some 240 objects from the famous vessel on sale online, amid enduring fascination with the doomed luxury liner more than a century after it sank.

RR, specializing in documents, manuscripts and historic artefacts, said the sale will be held from April 17 to 24.

Once thought to be unsinkable, the Titanic struck an iceberg and went down in the North Atlantic in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people.
