Report: Iranian Oil Tanker Sinks in East China Sea
An Iranian oil tanker reportedly sunk off the coast of the East China Sea on Sunday, according to Chinese state media. The tanker—which was carrying nearly a million barrels of oil to South Korea—had been on fire for more than a week after it experienced a collision. China’s Xinhua news agency reported that the oil itself was on fire, too, following a major explosion. Three bodies have been recovered, and the rest of the 32-person crew is presumed to be dead.
