A ship carrying clay from Malaysia to Hong Kong capsized off Vietnam on Thursday and at least 15 sailors are missing, feared drowned.

Vietnamese state media said the cargo ship got into difficulties in rough seas off the central province of Binh Thuan.

The Panama-flagged Xin Hong had a crew of 11 Chinese and four Vietnamese sailors onboard and a cargo of 7,800 tonnes of Malaysian clay, the Nhan Dan newspaper reported.

The ship’s crew had contacted Vietnam maritime authorities for help earlier on Thursday when the cargo vessel began to list in rough seas, the report said.

Vietnam has sent a rescue team, including a coast guard cutter, to search for the missing sailors, the report said.

Reuters is reporting that the rescuers located the vessel and found an empty inflatable life raft nearby.
