The AFP news service reported, four crew members have been rescued and 12 others are missing after a Chinese mainland fishing vessel collided with a tanker from Hong Kong off the coast of Japan in Oct. 5th.


A search was ongoing Thursday night for the missing fishermen.


The fishing vessel, with the 16 crew members aboard, was identified as the 290-metric-ton Lurong Yuanyu 378 and the tanker from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region was the 63,294-ton tanker Bright Oil Lucky carrying 21 crew members, who were believed to be safe.


The collision was in international waters some 400 kilometers north of the Oki Islands in western Japan, the Chinese consulate-general in Osaka said.


Japan sent three patrol vessels to the area where the collision occurred, and the Japanese Coast Guard set up a response unit, the consulate-general said.


The Chinese fishing boat capsized after colliding with the tanker, the Associated Press reported.


The consulate-general sent a working group to the scene to help with the search and rescue operation. It is keeping in contact with the Japanese Coast Guard.
