Panama Flagged VesselsSOCOTRA, Nov. 18 (Saba) Rescuers have saved the crew, security and passengers of a Panamanian cargo vessel after it sank off Yemen on Wednesday. The authorities in Socotra archipelago, Hadramout, received a report by the ferry's agent that the vessel, al Mustafa 1, capsized and those onboard needed help, director of Socotra Passport Authority Fuad Saad said, adding that a search and rescue team was immediately assigned to help them. The ten crew members including eight Yemenis, a Tanzanian and a Somali, two Yemeni coastguards whose duty was to safeguard it and three passengers from the archipelago were all rescued, said the director. The rescuers found them on floating timber and barrels after the ship drowned about 10 nautical miles off Socotra, he said.
