China Ocean Shipping (Group) Company said its ships anchored at Tianjin port were not affected by the blasts at a warehouse in the country's northeastern city last week, though some of its facilities in the area suffered varying levels of damage.

China's largest shipping conglomerate, whose listed firms include China COSCO Holdings , said in an emailed statement on Monday that a few of its employees and their family members suffered minor injuries.

The official Xinhua news agency said on Sunday that the death toll from Wednesday's disaster rose to 112, while 95 people are missing.
