'No hope of survivors' in Iranian tanker fire

It collided with the CF Crystal (IMO:9497050), which was carrying grain from the United States, about 160 nautical miles (184 km) off China's coast near Shanghai.

The Iranian oil tanker on fire off the coast of China for more than a week has sunk to the bottom of the sea, local media reported. An anchorwoman on state television also offered condolences on behalf of the nation for the loss.

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

There is no hope of survival for missing sailors on a burning oil tanker off China, the chief of Iran's maritime agency has said.

They retrieved the ship's black box but had to evacuate because of the toxic smoke and high temperatures.

All of its crew - 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis - have been confirmed as dead.
