Ing Hua Fu No. 9 Sinking After Explosion

New Straight Times brings us this video with the following information from Port Klang:

A cargo ship loaded with chemicals and steel products exploded in a huge fireball and sank at Southpoint here this evening.

There were no casualties but the sheer force of the blast shattered windows and shock waves were felt up to 3km away.

The ship, Ing Hua Fu No 9, was being loaded with hundreds of tonnes of steel when its cargo hold caught fire at about 4.30pm.
