WELLINGTON - A container ship struck a reef off New Zealand on Wednesday and has taken on water near the country's biggest export port, marine authorities said.

The 47,230 tonne Liberian-flagged Rena hit the reef, about 12 nautical miles (22 km) from Tauranga on the east coast of the country's North Island, early in the morning.

Maritime New Zealand said there were no injuries among the 236-meter vessel's 25 crew, and the vessel was in no immediate danger.
