An investigation into the cause of the MOL Comfort accident by the vessel's classification body ClassNK has found the vessel’s design complied fully with both its own rules and IACS regulations.

Eleven crew are missing after Bangladeshi general cargo vessel MV Hope capsized in heavy weather off the Thai beach resort of Phuket.

Towing of the wreck of the MOL Comfort in the Indian Ocean has resumed.

Salvors are attempting to re-attach a tow to the fore section of the wreck of the boxship MOL Comfort.

The Japan Coast Guard has confirmed that a car carrier owned by Norwegian Car Carriers (NOCC) did collide with a fishing vessel on 23 June, leading to the likely death of the trawler's captain.

The MOL Comfort’s aft section, which remained afloat in the Indian Ocean for several days after the vessel’s catastrophic structural failure, sank at 16:48 hrs local time.

Salvors have managed to attach a tow to the fore section of the stricken boxship MOL Comfort, however, the aft section is rolling heavily and losing containers.

Japanese Coast Guard inspections of the hull of a Norwegian Car Carriers (NOCC) vessel, that may have been involved in an incident with a fishing vessel, showed damage to the bow indicating contact.

The six sister vessels of the stricken MOL Comfort are to be inspected, as the first salvage vessels reach the wreck.

Salvage vessels are expected to reach the two parts of the stricken boxship MOL Comfort today.
