Two Chittagong dockworkers die unloading logs from Precious ship

Two Chittagong dockworkers were found dead this morning. The two men were helping unload logs from a Precious Shipping vessel, the Latika Naree. The pair were found deep inside one of the holds of the ship.

A local police chief commented: “We are still not sure about how they died. They might have slipped from the stairs in the ship and died while working late at night.”
