QUANG NGAI: The High Command of Coast Guard Region 2 on Feb 22 saved seven fishermen in distress off the coast of the central province of Quang Nam.

It said on Feb 23 that at around 3:30pm on Feb 22, it received a notification from the Maritime Search and Rescue Coordination Centre Region 2 about a vessel from central Quang Ngai province sinking in rough seas about five nautical miles from Ky Ha port of Quang Nam province.
