The Philippine Coast Guard sent search and rescue teams to look for at least 12 Filipino fishermen whose boat had collided with a Hong Kong vessel on June 28. In a statement, the Coast Guard said it had received a call from the captain of the Hong Kong-registered vessel MV Vienna Wood about the incident with FV Liberty, 14.57 nautical miles west-southwest off Mamburao in the province of Occidental Mindoro. The Philippine boat was bound for Navotas City and had stopped for supplies in Tawi-Tawi in the nation’s south. The Hong Kong bulk carrier with 20 crew members had come from Subic Bay in Zambales province and was on its way to Australia.
