SANTO DOMINGO, April 9 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese cargo ship ran aground Monday off the Dominican Republic's southwest coast, a Chinese trade representative office confirmed Wednesday.

All 23 Chinese crew members aboard the ship, the Daqin, were safe, the office said.

The ship, carrying 170,000 tons of bauxite, ran aground 2.7 nautical miles from Cabo Roju port on its way back to China, the Dominican military said.

A rescue team rushing to the scene Tuesday found neither damage to the ship nor oil leakage. The Daqin is expected to be freed after unloading some of its cargo.
