  • Hawaii missile alert false alarm

The Iranian oil tanker went up in flames after it collided with a Chinese freighter in the East China Sea last week.

The stricken tanker, Sanchi, had drifted into Japan's exclusive economic zone and "suddenly ignited", reports said. The ship sank before 5pm, CCTV said.

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.

The crew consisted of 30 Iranian and two Bangladeshi sailors.

Meanwhile, Iranian commando forces who have been stationed at Port of Shanghai since Thursday, have received the go-ahead to board the ablaze vessel in search of survivors. The tanker was carrying a cargo of almost 1 million barrels of condensate, a type of gassy, ultra-light oil that readily evaporates or burns off in a fire, reducing the chance of a major oil spill. All 21 of the cargo ship's crew were reported safe.

There are 13 vessels near where the collision took place, including two Japanese ships and a South Korean one.

The network said rescuers were prevented from entering the crew living quarters by temperatures as high as 192 degrees.
