Authority: No toxic goods in sunken containers

More than 20 containers fell into the Yangtze River when they were being loaded onto a freighter in the Pudong International Container Terminal in Shanghai this morning. Local maritime officials said 15 of them had been salvaged by noon and assured the public that no hazardous goods were inside the containers. Improper distribution of weight was blamed for the accident and choppy water also caused the ship to tip over, officials said.
