BA RIA-VUNG TAU  (VNS) — Rescue work on the sunken South Korean ship Heung A Dragon has become urgent after an oil spill leaking from the ship was detected in Vung Tau Coast, according to the Vung Tau Port Authority.

The spill has been temporarily cleaned up, but due to the possibility of another storm, the rescue force has been urged to salvage the ship and goods in its container to prevent blasts and environmental contamination.

The port authority was set to finalise the rescue plan today.

The Heung A Dragon was carrying containers from Hong Kong to HCM City last Thursday, when it collided with the Eneli vessel departing from Phu My Port in Viet Nam's southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province.— VNS
