QUANG NINH — Nine fishermen were rescued after their boat was hit by an unknown vessel in the territorial water off central Binh Thuan Province's Phan Thiet town on Tuesday.
They were taken to Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province last night.
After receiving a SOS signal from the distressed fishing vessel, the Coastal Radio system called aid for the distressed vessel.
One Panamanian vessel arrived and took the fishermen on board. It later transferred them to a Vietnamese vessel. — VNS
