At least 15 seafarers are missing after a cargo ship capsized in rough weather off Vietnam.
According to local media reports, 11 Chinese and 4 Vietnamese seafarers were on board the cargo ship which was transporting 7800 tonnes of clay from Malaysia to Hong Kong.
Vietnam received a message from the crew on board when the ship had begun to start listing in heavy seas.
A rescue team, including board guard vessels, were sent by Vietnam in order to search for the missing seafarers.
The ship’s inflatable life raft was found near the sinking ship with no one inside.
