Eight North Korean sailors were rescued but 17 remain missing after their cargo vessel sank Tuesday off the coast of northeastern China, the Xinhua News Agency reported. The 3,000-ton cargo ship Ryong Ak San was carrying 25 crew members and 2,900 tons of ore when it sank Tuesday afternoon off the coast of China's city of Dalian, the report said, quoting the city's maritime rescue office. The Chinese maritime authorities continue to search for the missing crew members amid strong winds that hamper the operation, the report said, and the cause of the accident remains unknown.
