Burning Tanker Off Chinese Coast Sinks

Chinese rescuers find two bodies on burning oil tanker

The Iranian Cabinet in a statement on Sunday declared Jan 15 (Monday) as a day of public mourning for the victims of the oil tanker inferno, IRNA reported.

The crew was all Iranian expect for two Bangladeshis.

A burning Iranian oil tanker sank on Sunday with most of its crew still unaccounted for more than a week after it collided with a cargo ship in the East China Sea. "They burned to ashes while their families are wailing here!" said one woman, who did not give her name, to local media.

On Saturday, rescue workers had found the bodies of two crew members in a lifeboat, BBC reported.

All 21 Chinese crew members of the CF Crystal, which was transporting grain to Guangdong Province in southeastern China from the United States, were rescued, the Ministry of Transportation in Beijing said.

South Korean officials plan to ban all domestic cryptocurrency exchanges

Dramatic photos of the scene showed tall flames raging on board the ship, which was carrying nearly a million barrels of crude oil.

According to Iran's Consul General in Shanghai Alireza Irvash, the operation to put out the fire of the Iranian tanker began on Wednesday while flames of fire subsided despite bad weather in the region. Shana said the oil had been purchased by South Korean customers.

Three bodies were recovered over the week and just hours before the Sanchi's sinking Sunday.

The tanker was carrying a cargo of almost 1 million barrels of condensate, a type of gassy, ultra-light oil that readily evaporates or burns off in a fire, reducing the chance of a major oil spill. In August 2016, one of its tankers collided with a Swiss container ship in the Singapore Strait, damaging both ships but causing no injuries or oil spill.
