Trawler ABOU AL WAFA caught fire, sank, Morocco
Trawler ABOU AL WAFA caught fire in the morning Apr 26 at Agadir Port, Morocco, during maintenance works. Vessel capsized starboard while being moored, said to sink, meaning most probably, that she’s resting on bottom on her starboard, partially above waterline. Two firefighters and one worker were injured and hospitalized. Looks like vessel capsized after taking on too much water during firefighting, and becoming unstable.
