Burning oil tanker sinks with all 32 crew members confirmed dead

Chinese rescuers find two bodies on burning oil tanker

China's Ministry of Transport said the 21 Chinese sailors from the CF-Crystal had been rescued. The rest of the crew, including 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, remained missing.

An Iranian oil tanker has sunk after burning for more than a week following a collision on January 6 in the East China Sea, Chinese state media said on Sunday, adding that large amounts of oil were burning in the surrounding waters. "They burned to ashes while their families were wailing here!" cried out one woman who didn't give her name.

Iran announced that all the ship's crew members were presumed dead, according to Iranian state media.

It remains unclear whether there has been a significant oil leak into the sea.

The Sanchi, seen here on Friday, was carrying almost a million barrels of condensate, a type of ultra-light oil.

Israel's Saare Tzedek hospital would be signing an agreement with India's ministry of health and family welfare as well. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will embark on a six-day visit to India, starting from January 14.

According to Iran's Consul General in Shanghai Alireza Irvash, the operation to put out the fire of the Iranian tanker began on Wednesday while flames of fire subsided despite bad weather in the region.

"The oil spill situation is very serious", CCTV quoted the reporter as saying on social media. Only three bodies have been recovered.

Families, friends and colleagues of missing sailors gathered at the headquarters of the National Iranian Tanker Company, in Tehran, Iran, Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018.

After meeting with a special investigatory committee formed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, its spokesman, Mohammad Rastad, said that poisonous gas, Wednesday's explosion and oil pollution were complicating the response.

Earlier, it was reported that a majority of the 136,000 tonnes of oil condensate that was being carried by the tanker, had caught fire. China has recovered two bodies found in a lifeboat on the tanker and the oil tanker's black box.
