Latest news.. I will try to translate..

The Japanese-owned container ship MOL Comfort may not be sunk. The ship's owner, Mitsui OSK Lines, said it has sent two tugs to the position where the two parts of the ship is believed to be.

According to several sources, the two parts of the ship now 17 nautical miles apart, but these and all other information remains uncertain.

Also reports of oil spills vary widely. From Zero discharge to a large spill.

The only thing all sources agree on is that the ship's 26-man crew has escaped from the accident with their lives, and now find themselves on board the ships that sailed the ill-fated ship to the rescue Monday morning.

We continue to follow the case.
