Ministry: S. Korea Cargo Ship Missing Off Uruguay



SEOUL, Apr 1 – A South Korean cargo ship has gone missing in waters off Uruguay after making a distress call, Seoul’s foreign ministry said Saturday. The Stella Daisy with eight South Korean and 16 Filipino crew members on board disappeared Friday after sending a text message that it was sinking, the ministry said.

“It remains unknown whether the crew escaped to safety,” a ministry official was quoted as saying by Yonhap news agency. A search operation by Uruguayan coast guards was underway, it added. The Stella Daisy is a large ore carrier (VLOC) that can carry more than 260,000 tonnes. — AFP
