Manila: A ship anchored at the port of Iloilo sank yesterday morning. All 29 crew of the MV Sportivo were rescued. The cargo of 28,000 bags of fertilizer sank however.
The 663 gt ship owned by Cebu-based Seen Sam Shipping was buffeted by strong waves and its anchor dragged leading to a collision with another vessel, MV Jehan, which suffered minor damages. No oil spill has been reported so far. [20/01/14]
