  • China boat crash

Iran's Petroleum Ministry on Sunday confirmed that 32 crew members, including 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, have gone missing after two vessels collided off China's east coast.

The incident occurred late on Saturday about 160 nautical miles off the coast near Shanghai and the mouth of the Yangtze River Delta.

The 274-meter-long oil tanker Sanchi, owned by National Iranian Shipping Company and with 136,000 tonnes of condensate oil on board, was travelling from Iran to South Korea.

Smoke and fire is seen from Panama-registered tanker Sanchi carrying Iranian oil after it collided with a Chinese freight ship in the East China Sea, in this still image taken from a January 7, 2018 video.

Chinese officials dispatched several maritime police vessels, two rescue boats, and three professional cleaning ships to the area.

The ministry said all 21 Chinese crew members were rescued from the damaged cargo vessel. Footage from state television channel CCTV showed the ship in the grip of an intense fire, enveloped in clouds of black smoke.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the collision.

Chinese maritime authorities have sent eight ships for the search and rescue operation and South Korea has sent a plane and a 3,000-tonne coastguard ship to help.

About 63,000 tonnes of its cargo leaked into the Atlantic, damaging beaches in France, Spain and Portugal and forcing the closure of Spain's richest fishing grounds.

This is the first major accident involving an Iranian oil tanker since global sanctions were lifted in January 2016.

It was due to arrive at Daesan in South Korea from Kharg Island in Iran on Sunday, according to Reuters ship tracking.

"We are working very closely with the relevant authorities to establish the facts surrounding the collision", it said in a statement.

The Chinese ministry said the second ship in the collision was a Hong Kong-flagged cargo ship carrying 64,000 tons of grain.
