Terrible incident. I think one of the vessels is the ex Greta Kosan. A familiar sight here in Milford Haven.

It cannot be KANDY 9004683 - according to her AIS she is currently in Sri Lanka.
I notice a number of media agencies are refering to the vessel as KANDY, (and Tanzania flag), but cannot see anything in the vicinity which matches or has a similar name.
