Human Error by Iran, China Sank Sanchi

Human error by both the Iranian and Chinese sides largely contributed to the collision involving the tanker Sanchi, which resulted in the death of 32 people and the worst oil ship disaster in decades off the coast of China, says a lawmaker.  
The Panama-registered tanker—run by Iran’s top oil shipping operator, NITC—collided with the freighter CF Crystal near Shanghai and the mouth of the Yangtze River Delta on January 6, according to Reuters. 
The Sanchi—which was sailing from Iran to South Korea, carrying 136,000 tons of condensate, an ultra-light crude—sank on January 14 after drifting ablaze for more than a week. 
The ship’s crew of 30 Iranians and two Bangladeshis were killed, while the CF Crystal returned safely to port with its crew after the incident.
