Dhow AL-ZAMAN sank in Arabian sea, 15 crew rescued by HMS Portland
Cargo ship AL ZAMAN sank on Sep 6, 96 nautical miles off the coast of Ras Al Hadd, Oman. 15 crew were rescued in a joint SAR operation, carried out by British Royal Navy and Oman coastguard. HMS Portland (F79) was the closest to the disaster site, and managed to locate and rescue all crew. No data found on AL-ZAMAN vessel, most probably it’s a local cargo dhow.
