Collision Sinks Ship

VLADIVOSTOK, Far East () -- A Chinese fishing schooner sank after colliding in the dark with a Russian trawler in the Korea Strait, Itar-Tass reported Monday.


The sailors from the Russian ship, the Kazalinsk, managed to save two men from the Chinese vessel Sunday night, officials said. It was not known whether any other sailors were missing.


The Kazalinsk had been sold to China, and was en route to Shanghai, the agency said, quoting the Vladivostok-based Dalryba company.
