    Seven South Korean and nine Indonesian sailors are missing after two commercial ships collided off Japan early on Tuesday, the Japan Coast Guard said. The South Korean-flagged Orchid Pia and Panamanian-flagged Cygnus Ace, collided at about 2.15am, Monday, (3.15am Singapore time) in waters off Izu Oshima Island, roughly 120km south of Tokyo, the coast guard said.

    The ship, carrying 16 crew members and 5,051 tons of steel coils, was travelling from the port of Kashima in eastern Japan to South Korea, the coast guard said.

    'It is possible that Orchid Pia sunk,' a coast guard official said.

    'We found an empty raft in the area waters, but so far we are continuing the search for the missing individuals,' he said.
