Storyline


Raging fire still burned on an oil tanker on Friday in East China Sea after it collided with a Chinese vessel one week ago.

Oil tanker SANCHI, carrying 136,000 tons of light crude oil from Iran, had been burning since it collided with the CF Crystal, a Hong Kong-registered bulk freighter, about 160 nautical miles east of the Yangtze River estuary in Shanghai on January 6.

Thirty-two crew members of the tanker, including 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis went missing after the collision, but the body of one crew member had been found.

All 21 crew members on the bulk freighter -- all Chinese nationals -- were rescued.

The Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration told a press conference on Friday that the tanker had tilted to the right and was likely to explode and sink.

Firefighters and marine salvation workers were struggling to extinguish flames on the tanker. Meanwhile, the rescue effort for the missing sailors was still going on.

"After several days' aerial observation, (we find that) the fire has not burned down. The hull structure is more fragile than before. The breach on the starboard gets bigger. It might be because of the explosion on Thursday," said Li Gongyi, deputy head of aerial enforcement team under China Marine Surveillance.

Oil slick stretching some five kilometers on the sea covers an area of about three square kilometers.

Rescue teams from Japan and the Republic of Korea had also come to the site for assistance.
