2 bodies recovered from burning oil tanker in East China Sea


BEIJING — Rescuers on Saturday recovered the bodies of two crew members of an Iranian oil tanker that’s been on fire since colliding with a freighter last week in the East China Sea. The bodies were found on the lifeboat deck of the Sanchi on Saturday morning, state broadcaster CCTV said. Rescuers stayed aboard less than 30 minutes but were able to recover the ship’s data and video recordings, it said. One body was recovered from the sea earlier this week, leaving 29 crew members still unaccounted for. The Chinese freighter CF Crystal that collided with the Panamanian-registered tanker had 21 crew members, who all were reported safe.
