According to Yonhap:

Two sailors were killed and 15 remain missing after a North Korean-registered cargo ship sank in the Yellow Sea off China, according to a news report Saturday.

The North Korean ship Kang Bong sank on Friday morning “amid strong gales” off Lianyungang Port in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu, China’s Xinhua News Agency reported.

Three sailors had been rescued, and rescuers recovered the bodies of two deceased sailors, the report said, citing the Rescue and Salvage Center under the Ministry of Transport.

Two helicopters and a rescue ship were searching for the missing sailors, but strong winds and high waves were hampering the search, the report said.
