A Vietnamese ship carrying nearly 10,000 tons of clinker sank Tuesday after a giant Liberian-flagged vessel collided with it off the coast of Vung Tau.


My An 1, which was carrying the clinker from the northern Quang Ninh Province to Ho Chi Minh City, was anchored near a buoy 12 km from Vung Tau, which borders HCMC, to clear a Covid-19 checkpoint at around 2:30 a.m. when the Lisa Auerbach rammed it.


The 138-meter ship was en route to Lotus port in Ho Chi Minh City, the Marine Administration of Vung Tau said.
