A regional cargo ship sinking off the coast of Jalan Bani Bu Ali province, Oman, in the early hours of August 27, 2016 according to reports.

The cargo ship sinking had 11 crew members but there have been no casualties or fatalities reported, however the cargo of 69 cars, food cargo, tyres and engine oil went down with the ship.

Primarily a coastal trade vessel, the dhow was on its way from Sharjah, UAE to Al Mukalla Port, Yemen, when a cargo shift caused it to go under.

This comes three days after PTI reported a cargo ship called the Se Pacifica and a product tanker entitled King Emerald, collided at Nieuwpoort anchorage, Belgium.

Below is a regional news report from AsianNetNews showing the extent of the damage done to the vessel and its cargo, along with the identities of the crew members rescued:
