AFP – Japan’s coastguard was searching Friday for six crew of a Japanese cargo ship that capsized after colliding with a Sierra Leone-registered vessel.
The Eifukumaru No.18 was found capsized in waters off Japan’s Izuoshima island, around 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of Tokyo by patrol boats and a plane that had been dispatched to the area, a spokesman said.
“We are still searching for six crew members, all Japanese, who were on a vessel carrying steel from Nagoya to Chiba,” he said, adding that the Sierra Leone-registered ship was not in danger.

An explosion after a cargo train derailed Tuesday in a Baltimore suburb rattled homes at least a half-mile away and collapsed nearby buildings, setting them on fire, officials and witnesses said.
The train went off the tracks at about 2pm in White Marsh, about 10 miles northeast of Baltimore and a fire department spokeswoman said she did not know if there were any injuries.
Hazmat teams were on the scene, Baltimore County Police and Fire said in a series of tweets.
