Another man from the cargo vessel Van Don 02, which sank on the southern part of East Sea on December 28, has been saved. This now takes the rescued crewmembers to 12. However, another 11 people from the ship are still missing.

Do Thanh Tu, 26, from Hai Phong City was saved by fishing boat number 95690 on December 29, said Do Trieu Quang, the owner of the Van Don 02.

Mr Quang, director of the Quang Ninh Sea Transport, Import and Export Joint Stock Company, also added that Tu’s health is still rather weak.

Earlier on December 28, 11 members of the vessel were saved by two fishing boats from the southern province of Kien Giang.

Pham Xuan Thuy, deputy director of the company said that the sinking incident might have been caused by a tornado, triggered by a low-pressure system.

The remaining crewmembers that were lost at sea have been identified and they are mainly from Quang Ninh, Hai Phong, Thai Binh, Ha Noi and Ha Nam.

Iran says 11 members of Sunni militant group hanged

In Uncategorized on December 21, 2010 at 9:34 am

TEHRAN, Dec 20, 2010 (AFP) – Iran on Monday hanged 11 members of Sunni militant group Jundallah which claimed last week’s devastating suicide bombing of a Shiite mourning procession, a judiciary official said.

“This morning 11 members of those belonging to (Jundallah), who in recent months were involved in terrorist attacks in the province (Sistan-Baluchestan), fighting with police, and martyring several innocent people have been hanged in Zahedan jail,” Ebrahim Hamidi, head of the provincial justice department, told state news agency IRNA.

Jundallah (Army of God) is a shadowy Sunni militant group which has claimed several deadly attacks in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan province, including a December 15 suicide bombing in the city of Chabahar which killed 39 people and wounded dozens.

Hope fades for 11 trapped miners in China

In Uncategorized on October 17, 2010 at 6:24 am

Rescuers said Sunday there was little hope that 11 missing miners survived a gas leak in a central Chinese coal mine that killed 26 of their colleages, after Chile offered help in the operation.

Du Bo, the deputy director of the rescue operation, said it would take days to find the miners, who were trapped when a “sudden coal and gas outburst” hit Saturday in the central province of Henan, state media reported.

“There is not much of a chance that the 11 trapped miners could have survived and it will take three to four days to find them,” Du was quoted as saying by the official China News Service.

File photo shows coal miners at a small mine in Xiaoyi in China’s Shanxi province.

The missing miners were likely buried amid the more than 2,500 tonnes of coal dust that smothered the pit after the gas leak, suffocating most of the victims, Du said, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

A total of 276 miners were at work below ground when the disaster happened in the city of Yuzhou and 239 managed to make it to the surface, the national work safety agency said, confirming the death and missing toll.

Chilean President Sebastian Pinera offered to help China, saying his country had learned from the San Jose mine disaster in northern Chile, where 33 miners were trapped for two months before being pulled out alive last week.

“If we can be of any help, they know that they can count on us,” Pinera said during a visit to London.

China’s latest tragedy highlights the appalling safety conditions in its mines, in which over 2,600 miners perished last year, according to official figures.

Rescuers said the missing miners were 50 to 80 metres (165 to 260 feet) below the pit entrance but the heavy dust slowed their progress through the narrow tunnels.

The Henan mine is owned by a consortium that includes China Power Investment Corp. — a major state-owned power producer, Xinhua said.

Chinese mines are notoriously dangerous due to the widespread flouting of safety rules, typically blamed on corrupt mine operators trying to keep costs down, with coal mining particularly accident-prone.

China’s poor safety record has come under fresh scrutiny after the successful rescue of the Chilean miners gripped the world, sparking comparisons with China’s litany of deadly disasters.

Last year, 2,631 Chinese miners were killed, according to official statistics, but independent labour groups say the true figure is likely to be much higher as many accidents are believed to be covered up.

The government has repeatedly vowed to shut dangerous mines and increase safety, but the accidents continue with regularity as mines hustle to pump out the coal on which China relies for about 70 percent of its energy.

Some state media editorials said China should learn from the better training and safety systems of Chilean mines.

China had its own “miracle” mine rescue in April when 115 miners were rescued after more than a week trapped underground in a flooded mine shaft in the northern province of Shanxi.

11 killed, dozens missing in Indonesia boat sinking: govt

KUPANG, Aug 9, 2010 (AFP) – At least 11 people were killed and more than 30 are missing after a passenger boat went down in waters off eastern Indonesia on Monday, the country’s search and rescue agency said.

“We have found 11 dead bodies and still look for about 32 people that went missing,” National Search and Rescue Agency spokesman Gagah Prakoso told AFP.

The boat set sail carrying about 60 passengers at 07.30 am (2330 GMT on Sunday) and capsized two hours later off Flores island, in East Nusa Tenggara province, he said.

Local police chief Abdul Rahma Aba said that the inter-island vessel was struck by high waves which caused panic among passengers before it capsized about two miles from shore.

Prakoso said that 17 passengers were found alive and searchers including local fishermen continued to hunt for survivors.

The Indonesian archipelago of more than 17,000 islands is heavily dependent on maritime services but its safety record is poor, and fatal accidents are common.

Up to 335 people were killed when a heavily overloaded ferry sank off Sulawesi island in January last year. In December 2006 a ferry went down in a storm off the coast of Java, killing more than 500 people.

More than 11,000 cars violate emissions standards

In Uncategorized on August 11, 2008 at 3:10 pm

Of 76,000 cars evaluated, more than 11,000 failed to meet European Emission Standards for passenger cars (Euro 2), according to Nguyen Huu Tri, director of the Vehicle and Motor Test Department at the Vietnam Register.

Over 3,000 cars in violation used petrol and 8,500 used diesel.

“Most non-standard cars can get operation certificates after receiving necessary maintenance and repairs,” said Tri.

Since July 1, all cars nationwide are subject to new emission regulations, equivalent to Euro 2 standards. Cars found in violation will not get necessary environmental and technological safety certification.

Diesel cars must meet the average Free Acceleration Smoke limit, at 72 percent or below.

Two years ago, in Hanoi , Hai Phong, Da Nang , HCM City and Can Tho, the Euro 2 standard was applied, and around 10 percent of cars were found in violation during the first month of verification.

At present, there are 850,000 cars in operation nationwide.-
