  • Flaming Iranian oil tanker sinks after Jan. 6 collision, entire team presumed dead

China Central Television (CCTV) reported that large amounts of oil were burning where the tanker went down. The rest of the crew, including 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis, remained missing.

An oil tanker burning in the East China Sea has sunk a week after it collided with another vessel, according to Chinese state media. "They burned to ashes while their families were wailing here!" cried out one woman who didn't give her name.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi previously told his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif that "as long as there is 1% of hope, China will continue to make 100% effort" to rescue and recover other members of the crew.

In the place remains an oil spill that covers 10 kilometers caused by a leak and the environmental authorities foresee that it affects the marine ecosystem.

But the Sanchi, carrying almost 1 million barrels of a gassy, ultra-light oil bound for South Korea, burst into flames.

Thirteen ships, including one from South Korea and two from Japan, had been deployed in the rescue and cleanup effort, Intense flames, which was hampered by bad weather and poor visibility have all hampered rescue efforts. The ship then sank into the sea. A rescue team from China has recovered three bodies and retrieved the "black box".
