Two bodies found on sunken ship off Turkey

Turkey`s state-run news agency says divers have recovered the bodies of two of the eight missing crew members from a Cambodian-flagged freighter.



Ankara: Turkey`s state-run news agency says
divers have recovered the bodies of two of the eight missing
crew members from a Cambodian-flagged freighter that sank off
Turkey`s Black Sea coast.

The Anadolu Agency says the bodies were found inside the
ship today.

The Vera was carrying 10 Ukrainians and one Georgian when
it sank off the coast of Eregli in stormy waters on Tuesday
while sailing from Russia to Turkey`s port of Aliaga.

The ship`s second and third officers and its cook were
rescued but the other eight crew members, including the
captain, were reported missing.

Divers have been hampered by high seas and poor underwater
visibility, but they began searching the wreckage yesterday.
