Burning Iranian oil tanker finally sinks after Jan. 6 accident


BEIJING - A burning Iranian oil tanker that had drifted into Japan's exclusive economic zone has sunk after a collision on Jan. 6, Chinese state television said on Sunday.

The ship which had 32 mariners on board, carrying almost 1 million barrels of condensate, has been ablaze for almost a week since it collided with another vessel in the East China Sea.

Two bodies were recovered from the tanker a day earlier, when a four-member salvage team managed to get on board.
