An explosion tore apart South Korean tanker Doola No.3

At around 0805 LT Jan 15 an explosion tore apart South Korean tanker Doola No.3 three miles north of Jawol Island near Incheon, Yellow sea. Tanker was in ballast, so apparently, blast was caused by gas in empty cargo tanks. Vessel broke in two and partially sank, 5 crew killed and 5 or 6 missing, which in sum accounts for two thirds of the 16 crew, 11 Koreans and 5 Myanmar. Chemical tanker Doola No.3 IMO 9262106, dwt 6536, built 2002, flag South Korea, manager DOOLA SHIPPING CO LTD. On photos Doola after and before an explosion.
