Posted by

Eleven Indian crew members were missing after their cargo ship sank in the Pacific off the Philippines.
A spokesman from Japan’s coastguard said,’ The 33,205-tonne Emerald Star with 26 Indian nationals on board sent a distress signal early Friday as the Hong Kong-registered vessel was sailing some 280 kilometres (174 miles) east of the northern tip of the Philippines. Three other vessels sailing near the area rescued 15 crew members but 11 others were still missing. We have dispatched two patrol boats and three planes to the site but a typhoon has made a rescue difficult’.
