A vessel carrying radioactive waste is now under tow after a fire forced it to cut its engines off the coast of Scotland yesterday night.

A public comment by DNV GL vice president Knut Dohlie at the International Union of Marine Insurers (IUMI) 2014 Conference is set to ignite more controversy as it postulates that a "non-robust" design caused the break-up and sinking of the MOL Comfort, although the class society's findings are based on its own models made with only publicly available data and some assumptions.

As the people who have to worry about paying out when something goes wrong, the increasing size of vessels concerns marine insurers greatly.

Lee Joon-Seok, captain of the Korean ferry Sewol at the time of its sinking, as well as its chief engineer and two navigators, have been indicted for manslaughter and could face the death sentence.

A 53-year old civilian diver has been found dead in the submerged hull of Korean ferry Sewol, bringing the confirmed death toll to 263 with 39 still missing.

Chemical tanker Maritime Maisie has been granted refuge by the South Korean government after almost 100 days adrift in the Sea of Japan.

Some 104 bodies have been recovered from the sunken South Korean ferry Sewol, with a further 198 missing.

 

The death toll from the sunken South Korean ferry has continued to rise as scores of people remained missing.

The confirmed death toll in the South Korean ferry disaster has risen to 28, as it was revealed the third officer was in charge of the vessel at the time of the accident.

At least nine people have died and close to 300 remained missing after a South Korean ferry sank in Korean waters on Wednesday, as search and rescue operations are continuing.
