CHITTAGONG: A container-laden vessel got stranded at a shoal beside the Chittagong port channel on Monday morning.

The Malta-flagged vessel ‘Tzini’ got stuck near the Buoy No.1 beside estuary of the river Karnaphuli at around 10:00am. It was carrying 1,126 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit) containers, said sources.

Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) Secretary Omar Faruk said the vessel got stuck while giving passage to a lighter vessel on its way to port jetty amid dense fog.
