‘Cambodian’ ship sinks off Japan

A Cambodian-flagged cargo ship with 10 crew members on board – including one Cambodian citizen – sank off the coast of northern Japan early yesterday morning, according to Japan’s Kyodo News Agency.

The ship, named the Ming Guang, was one of dozens of Cambodia-flagged vessels registered with a Busan, South Korea-based company with which Phnom Penh contracts to sell shipping licences.

The ship sank about 18 kilometres from the coast of Aomori prefecture about 4am, according to the media reports. The Japanese Embassy in Phnom Penh and the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs did not respond to requests for comment yesterday.
