Explosion on Burning Oil Tanker Forces Back Rescue Teams
Rescue crews were forced to retreat from a burning oil tanker in the East China Sea on Wednesday after an explosion on the ship — still ablaze four days after colliding with a cargo ship.
The Panama-flagged tanker, named Sanchi, was en route from Iran to South Korea when it collided with the Hong Kong-flagged CF Crystal about 160 nautical miles (184 miles) east of the Yangtze River estuary on Saturday night, China’s Ministry of Transport said.
