The Chinese Transport Ministry says 32 people, a lot of them Iranians, are missing from an oil tanker that collided with a cargo ship off the east coast of China.

Iran's oil ministry has confirmed that at least 30 Iranian citizens were missing in oil tanker incident. The collision site in the East China Sea is about 160 nautical miles east of the Yangtze river delta, according to Chinese authorities.

While Chinese naval forces have deployed eight vessels as part of the rescue efforts, South Korea has pressed into service a ship and helicopter.

After coordination by the China Maritime Search and Rescue Centre, South Korea dispatched a coast guard ship and a fixed-wing aircraft to assist in the search and rescue operation.

It was carrying a $60m (£44m) cargo equivalent to slightly under a million barrels. Its rescued crew are all Chinese nationals, the country's Transport Ministry said. The vessel was carrying grain from the U.S.to Guangdong.

The tanker - carrying almost a million barrels of oil, worth about US$60m - had been sailing to Daesan in South Korea from Kharg Island in Iran, according to Reuters shipping data.
