Two Chinese fishermen went missing after their fishing boat sank on Friday after colliding with a Cambodia-registered ship in the East China Sea off Zhejiang Province.
The accident occurred at 4:20 a.m. off the waters of Yuhuan County in Zhejiang's Taizhou City, where the Cambodian ship, which was loaded with 4,100 tonnes of silica sand, hit the fishing boat, according to a spokesman with the Taizhou Marine Fisheries Bureau.
Rescuers are still searching for those missing, who were believed to be a couple, according to the spokesman.
The Cambodian ship, named "Yongxin," departed on Saturday from Danang, Vietnam and was on its way to the port of Chinhae in the Republic of Korea.
