Collision took place in the afternoon Aug 4 some 4 miles southeast of Gibraltar. ANL WYONG , deployed on EURAF5 Loop connecting Western Europe with Western Africa, was approaching Algeciras on arrival from Douala Cameroon, KING ARTHUR was en route from Georgia Black sea to Rotterdam, transiting Gibraltar in western direction.
