X-PRESS PEARL Jun 1: fire out, appalling photos

Jun 01 UPDATE: Fire on board of container ship X-PRESS PEARL is extinguished and the ship (the wreck of the ship) is already boarded by salvors. No doubt X-PRESS PEARL is a total loss, but thankfully, she was strong enough not to to sink or break apart. Photos are simply appalling.
