DISASTER MANAGEMENT
17 missing 2 dead after collision in East China Sea

Beijing (AFP) May 7, 2016


A collision between a fishing boat and a cargo ship in the East China Sea has left 17 missing and two dead, Chinese state media said Saturday.

The Lu Rong Yu collided with a Maltese freighter at 3:40 AM Beijing time, according to state broadcaster China Central Television.

Passing ships rescued two additional passengers who later died, the report said, adding that search and rescue operations are ongoing.

The cargo ship, which was under a Maltese flag, left the scene, according to China Radio International.

The incident occurs as China's aggressive pursuit of its territorial claims in the East and South China Sea has raised regional tensions.

Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam, among others, have complained about reckless behaviour by Chinese fishermen that has occasionally led to accidents at sea.

Tokyo and Beijing both lay claim to small islands in the East China Sea. known as the Senkakus in Japanese and the Diaoyu in Chinese.

In 2010, the Japanese coastguard arrested a Chinese trawler captain for allegedly ramming two of its patrol boats near the disputed territory.
