Half of Mitsui vessel sinks

July 8, 2013

Following last week’s news that Mitsui OSK’s container vessel MOL Comfort had split in two in the Indian Ocean with the loss of some of its cargo, the situation has worsened this week with the sinking of the aft section, which was carrying 1,700 containers. It is reported that no further salvage operations will be possible because of adverse weather conditions.
