(03-18 09:02)

Nine Chinese crew members are missing after two cargo chips collided at the mouth of Tokyo Bay early today, Japan's coastguard said.
The Panamanian-flagged Beagle III, a 12,630-ton vessel, carrying steel coil, sank after colliding with the South Korean-registered Pegasus Prime in the Uraga waterway. The accident happened at about 3:10 am local time.
“Twenty crew members, all Chinese, were on board the Beagle, of whom 11 have been rescued,'' a coastguard official said.
Patrol ships and a helicopter were continuing to search for the missing crew members about five hours after the accident, the official said.
The crew on the 7,406-ton Pegasus Prime were unhurt.
The sea was not believed to be rough at the time of the collision, according to the coastguard.—AFP
