#AceBreakingNews – Cambodian rescuers were still searching on Saturday for at least 10 missing Chinese nationals after a boat with more than 40 people on board sank near islands off the coastal town of Sihanoukville.
At least one body has been found, and there were reports that Vietnamese authorities had rescued nine people, the Preah Sihanouk Provincial Administration said on its Facebook page.
Vietnam’s Mot The Gioi newspaper reported nine people had been rescued late on Friday off the Vietnamese island of Phu Quoc, citing authorities there.
Chinese Ambassador Wang Wentian and Preah Sihanouk provincial Governor Kuoch Chamroeun on Saturday visited some of the 21 survivors found by Cambodian rescuers, the provincial government said.
Authorities said the boat sank early on Thursday off the town of Sihanoukville, popular with tourists and gamblers.
Video shot from a rescue boat showed many on board crowded at the bow as the stern began to dip under the water.
Rescue workers yelled that more help was on its way and tossed life jackets and life-saving buoys toward the ramshackle boat as it slowly began to list to the right and slip below the surface, sending the passengers spilling into the water.
Photos provided by local police show those rescued standing on a pier on the Cambodian mainland wearing garish holiday clothes, but it was not clear whether they had been provided to them after they were pulled out of the water.
Provincial police chief Major-General Chuon Narin told local media that the group of passengers had set off from the Chinese port of Guangzhou on September 11 on a speedboat, and had been transferred to the Cambodian fishing boat in international waters on September 17.
The boat had been close to its destination of the Cambodian province of Sihanoukville when its engine stopped and it began to sink, he said.
Another Cambodian boat arrived and rescued the two Cambodian crew, leaving the Chinese passengers to fend for themselves.
The two Cambodians were arrested and are being questioned by police.
It was not immediately clear why the Chinese nationals were being brought to Cambodia, but Cambodian National Police deputy chief General Chhay Sinarith said last month that authorities in recent years had uncovered numerous illegal online schemes luring workers to the country.
In the most recent incident to come to light, Malaysia’s foreign minister brought 24 nationals home from Cambodia two weeks ago after they were rescued from human traffickers.
Last month, Taiwan’s government said 333 of its citizens were stuck in Cambodia after being lured by crime groups promising high wages for tech jobs.
In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin told reporters that his government was in close communication with Cambodian authorities about the incident.
“We urge the Cambodian side to spare no efforts to search and rescue the missing and find out what happened swiftly,” he said.
Cambodian authorities sought to enlist the assistance of private boat operators in the area, offering a reward of 2 million riel (about $740) for every rescue.
Survivor Chengui Sheng told authorities that there had been 38 men and three women on board when the ship began to sink at 10:30am local time on Thursday, Kheang Phearom said.
The people rescued have been taken to a nearby Cambodian naval base, he said.
