  • Más de 30 desaparecidos tras choque de buques en costas chinas

Al menos 32 personas han desaparecido este sábado, entre ellas 30 de origen iraní y dos bengalíes, tras la colisión de dos buques frente a la costa este de China, según ha informado el Ministerio de Transporte del país.

La colisión ocurrió a aproximadamente 160 millas náuticas (casi 300 kilómetros) al este de la boca del río Yangtze, hacia las 8 p.m. hora local (7 a.m. ET), dijo en el comunicado.

Los 32 desaparecidos son miembros de la tripulación del petrolero iraní Sanchi registrado en Panamá, mientras que los 21 que viajaban en el carguero CF Crystal registrado en Hong Kong, todos de nacionalidad china, fueron rescatados.

El carguero, de una compañía con sede en la provincia de Zhejiang, medía 225 metros y llevaba 64.000 toneladas de cereal desde Estados Unidos hasta la provincia de Cantón, al sur de China. Ni la tripulación ni la embarcación sufrieron daños.

Funcionarios marítimos de China lanzaron una operación de búsqueda y rescate que incluye ocho barcos, con el apoyo de Corea del Sur, que ha provisto un barco guardacostas y una aeronave, dijo el ministerio.

En reacción a la noticia, el vicecanciller iraní para Asuntos Consulares, Parlamentarios y Migratorios, Hasan Qashqavi, ha asegurado que la Cancillería realizará el debido seguimiento para aclarar la situación de los ciudadanos desaparecidos.

Este domingo, el incendio del buque petrolero -con bandera panameña y aún a flote- seguía activo, y podían verse restos de hidrocarburos en la superficie del agua, añadió la misma fuente.

Una imagen publicada por la cadena estatal de televisión CGTN muestra grandes columnas de humo que salen del barco petrolero.
