All 32 crew members on board a Panama-flagged oil tanker were still missing Monday after the vessel collided with a cargo ship off the coast of Shanghai over the weekend.

The oil tanker Sanchi, en route from Iran to South Korea, caught fire after it rammed into the Hong Kong-flagged CF Crystal about 160 nautical miles (184 miles) east of the Yangtze River estuary at 7:50 p.m. Saturday, according to zjol.com.cn, a state-run news portal affiliated with the Zhejiang provincial government.
