The US Navy has joined the search for 32 crewmembers missing from an Iranian oil tanker that caught fire after colliding with a bulk freighter off China's East Coast. China, South Korea and the US sent ships and planes to search for the 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis who have been missing since the collision late Saturday. The US Navy, which sent a P-8A aircraft from Okinawa, Japan, to aid the search, said late on Sunday that none of the missing crew had been found. The Panama-registered tanker Sanchi was sailing from Iran to South Korea when it collided late Saturday with the Hong Kong-registered freighter CF Crystal in the East China Sea, 257 kilometers (160 miles) off the coast of Shanghai, China's Ministry of Transport said. All 21 crewmembers of the Crystal, which was carrying grain from the United States to China, were rescued, the ministry said.
