Cargo ships collide off Turkey coast

A cargo ship is evacuated in Turkey after colliding with two anchored ships. The Kayan I, battling fierce winds, brushed another cargo ship and a lighter vessel in the Bosphorus Strait while trying to moor off the coast of Istanbul. Weighing over 5600 tonnes, the listing Sierra Leone-flagged ship is now taking on water and part of its prow is visibly submerged. The other cargo ship also reportedly sustained damage to its accommodation section. Traffic in the strait remains unaffected for larger vessels though strong winds have forced the cancellation of some services for lighter boats. Sunita Rappai, Reuters
