A Vietnamese oil tanker has sunk, while trying to contain an oil slick in the South China Sea

A Vietnamese oil tanker has sunk, while trying to contain an oil slick in the South China Sea; 14 people missing and feared dead, authorities said.

The MT Duc Tri carrying 1,700 tons of crude oil was battered by bad weather and capsized near the southern seaside resort of Mui Ne in the night to Wednesday.

One sailor, identified as Luong Van Luu, 50, was rescued by a fishing boat and recovering in nearby Ba Ria hospital, but the other 14 men, including the captain, remained missing on Thursday, officials said.
