Three crew missing after oil tanker fire off Malaysia

Malaysian rescuers on Tuesday were searching for three missing crew members from an oil tanker that caught fire off the country's southern coast.

Thick, black smoke engulfed the Gabon-flagged ship when the fire broke out on Monday during its journey from China to Singapore, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) said in a statement.

Singaporean authorities identified the ship as the MT Pablo.
