Thirty-two sailors are missing after an oil tanker and freight ship collided off the east coast of China Saturday (January 6)), according to China’s Ministry of Transport.

The missing — 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshi citizens — are all crew members from the Panama-registered tanker SANCHI, the ministry said.”The accident caused oil tanker ‘SANCHI’ to catch on fire, tilting to the right, losing contact with the crew,” it said.

All 21 Chinese crew on board the Hong-Kong registered freighter the CF-Crystal were rescued, the ministry said.

The 274 meter-long (nearly 890 feet-long) SANCHI was carrying 136,000 tons of oil from Iran to South Korea when it collided with the CF Crystal, which had been transporting food from the United States to the Chinese city of Guangdong, it said.

The ministry said that the tanker was still afloat and burning Sunday morning 9 a.m. local time: “Until now, ‘SANCHI’ is floating and still on fire. There are fuel stains on the sea, the rescue is going on.”
