A merchant vessel SSL STAR loaded with hundreds of containers went down in Shahid Rajaei Port, south of Iran, Tuesday morning.

A merchant vessel loaded with 153 containers went down in Shahid Rajaei Port, south of Iran, Tuesday morning.

According to witnesses, the crew jumped into the sea for their lives but they are feared dead.

Three of the injured crew members have been transferred to hospital, the official added.

Experts are investigating the reason behind the incident, he said.

Shahid Rajaei Port is the biggest and the most equipped Bandar of its kind that covers 80 percent of container operations in Iran.

All the 14 crew members were Indian, an Iranian official said.

The height of the ship from its bottom to its top is about 25 metres. Part of the ship is outside the water and the other part is below the sea level. The reason for the incident is not clear yet.
