Sailors jump into water from burning ship

Several sailors have been rescued from a fire on board a ship in the Persian gulf by a TV crew who happened to be filming in the area.

Iranian state television reported the ship was carrying fuel to Iran's Bandar Abbas port when a large blaze broke out on board.

All nine crew members were able to escape onto the TV documentary makers' small boat.
