At least one person was killed and 10 others went missing when a Chinese fishing boat hit a cargo ship on the Yellow Sea off northeast China's Liaoning Province early on Wednesday, the local maritime police said.

The fishing boat, registered in Liaoning's Dandong city, collided with a 10,000-tonnage ship from the port city of Dalian about 30 nautical miles southwest of Dadong Port.

The fishing boat capsized and all the 11 people aboard fell into the sea.

One person was taken out but died despite medical treatment, Xinhua news agency reported, adding that rescuers are still searching for the 10 missing.
