Oil tanker SANCHI, owned by an Iranian shipping company, collided with a cargo ship.

A tanker carrying Iranian oil that collided with a Chinese freight ship in the East China Sea on Saturday was still ablaze this morning, a South Korean coast guard official said as emergency rescue teams continued to search for the missing crew.

The incident occurred late on Saturday about 160 nautical miles off the coast near Shanghai and the mouth of the Yangtze River Delta. It caught fire after the collision and was still ablaze, state-run Xinhua news agency quoted the ministry as saying.

The tanker - carrying almost a million barrels of oil, worth about US$60m - had been sailing to Daesan in South Korea from Kharg Island in Iran, according to Reuters shipping data.

"Sanchi is floating and burning as of now". CF Crystal's 21 Chinese crew members were rescued and the ship suffered "non-critical" damage, the ministry reports.

The Chinese ministry said the second ship in the collision was a Hong Kong-flagged cargo ship carrying 64,000 tons of grain. The tanker was carrying 136,000 tons (nearly one million barrels) of condensate and headed for South Korea.

China, South Korea and the USA sent ships and planes to search for the 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis missing since the collision late Saturday. Chinese maritime authorities have dispatched eight vessels, including three specialised cleansing vessels, for search and rescue.
