Bodies found as Sanchi burns, one week on

Fiji Sun - - Asia News -

Seoul: Sal­vage work­ers have man­aged to board a burn­ing oil tanker off China’s coast, re­cov­er­ing the bodies of two crew­men be­fore smoke forced them to leave.

The Sanchi is still ablaze one week after a col­li­sion with a cargo ship. The sal­vage team also re­cov­ered the ship’s “black box” record­ing unit.

The bodies of only three of the 32 crew­men - 30 Ira­ni­ans and two Bangladeshis - have so far been found. A team of Ira­nian com­man­dos is join­ing the op­er­a­tion. The tanker was sail­ing from Iran to South Korea at the time of the col­li­sion last Satur­day evening.
