MADRID - Spain's Marine Rescue Service says at least three fishermen have died and two are missing after their boat collided with a cargo vessel in a northwestern inlet.

A spokeswoman said five other crew members of the Spanish fishing boat had been rescued.

There were no immediate details on the cause of Tuesday's collision with the Singapore-flagged vehicle carrier, Baltic Breeze, in the inlet of Vigo.

The nationalities of the three dead were not disclosed.

The official was speaking on condition of anonymity as she is not authorized to be identified publicly as the service's spokesperson.
