Freighter sank in Vietnam

Freighter sank in Vietnam
A Syrian freighter carrying more than 16,000 tons of iron ore sank overnight in a river near the port of Ho Chi Minh City, officials said Tuesday.

A Syrian freighter carrying more than 16,000 tons of iron ore sank overnight in a river near the port of Ho Chi Minh City, officials said Tuesday.

A Syrian freighter carrying more than 16,000 tons of iron ore sank overnight in a river near the port of Ho Chi Minh City, officials said Tuesday. The freighter might have sunk because of damage it suffered after pulling free from its anchor Friday and drifting into two bridges, said Nguyen Van Hung, deputy manager of the Ho Chi Minh City port authority.

Oil from the freighter's engine spread in a slick on the Soai Rap River. Hoang Van Loc, director of an oil spill cleanup company, said his firm had removed more than a ton of oil from the river's surface as of noon Tuesday. The freighter, the Lady Belinda, sank where tugboats berthed it after they brought it under control after it drifted into the bridges over the weekend, port official Pham Anh Dung said. Dung said the wreck would not interfere with river traffic.

No one was on board when the freighter sank or when it hit the bridges, and no one was hurt, officials said.

The Vietnamese press reported Monday that the Muong Chuoi Bridge, which the freighter hit Saturday, had been closed to heavy traffic pending an inspection.
