Ship sinks in Albertkanaal

A ship carrying 1,000 tonnes of fertilizer has sunk in the Albertkanaal, a canal linking the port of Antwerp to Liège, and thus the River Scheldt to the River Meuse. The vessel crashed into another one and sank, with just the cabin sticking out above the water level. There were no casualties, but the ship is hampering other traffic on the busy economic link.
