Burning oil tanker sinks off China after one week
An oil tanker burning in the East China Sea for more than a week has finally sunk, Chinese media say, BBC reports.
The Sanchi and a cargo ship collided 260km (160 miles) off Shanghai on 6 January, with the tanker then drifting south-east towards Japan.
Iranian officials now say all 32 crew members - 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis - on the tanker are dead. The tanker was carrying 136,000 tonnes of ultra-light crude but Chinese officials say there is no major slick.
China Central Television said that the Sanchi had gone down after "suddenly igniting" around noon.
