Report: Cambodian-flag Ship Sinks, Three Reported Dead

Monday, December 26, 2011
According to a report posted on http://en.ria.ru, at least three were found dead after a Cambodia-flagged ship sank in the La Perouse Strait, an international waterway separating the Russian Island of Sakhalin and Japan's Hokkaido, Russia's regional emergencies center reported on Sunday.
The Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk coordination center reportedly registered a distress alert sent from an emergency buoy off Krilyon Cape in the La Perouse Strait at 8:00 a.m. local time on Saturday (21:00 GMT on Friday). The nearby Pacific Enterprise and Zaliv Vasilyeva ships and a Japanese vessel from Japan's coast guard navigation safety division are said to have joined the search for the missing ship and its crew, according to the report on http://en.ria.ru.
A severe storm -- with winds of 20 meters per second and sea waves of up to six meters high -- reportedly has hampered rescue operations.
