QUANG NINH (VNS)— Vietnamese cargo ship Nosco Victory, of the Northern Shipping Joint Stock Company, rescued 39 foreigners adrift in the sea of Bangladesh during its voyage from Bangladesh to Singapore yesterday.
The victims were the crew members and passengers of the Bangladesh-owned ship, Nayou, which had 200 passengers on board when it left Bangladesh for Malaysia.
The Vietnamese ship continued to look for other victims and attempted to contact the owner of the Nayou for a co-ordinated operation.
The ship will carry the victims to Singapore if they fail to contact the owner. — VNS
