Cargo ship sinks off Oman coast

Muscat, Sep. 3 (BNA): A Tanzanian-flagged cargo ship sank off the Omani coast due to leaked sea water.

The incident happened six miles to the North East of the port of Al-Labki in Wilayat Jazir, at Al-Wusta governorate, said the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

The ship was heading from the UAE to Eritrea, in East Eritrea, loaded with sand and iron rods, it added in a statement posted on the state-run Oman News Agency.

A fisherman succeeded in saving all the twenty-member crew of the sinking vessel.
