  • [01] Ship sinks after collision; 1 death reported

    The body of a merchant seaman was recovered Thursday afternoon following a collision between a small tanker and a Panamanian-flagged motorship southeast of the Saronic holiday island of Hydra -- south of Athens -- that resulted in the sinking of the latter vessel.

    Another five sailors, all believed to be Turkish nationals, were still missing at 4 p.m. local time (2 p.m. GMT).

    Conversely, seven crewmembers from the sunken cargo ship were rescued by the coast guard. The vessel was identified as the "Han". The tanker, meanwhile, was identified as the Greek-flagged "Alios Artemis". The tankerās crew recovered the body of the dead merchant seaman, Greek authorities said.

    Meanwhile, the seven rescued crewmembers of the Han -- loaded with steel and headed from Turkey to Casablanca, Morocco -- were being transported by helicopter to an Athens-area hospital. The tanker had departed a refinery west of Athens and was headed for Irakleio, Crete. The collision occurred approximately 16 nautical miles southeast of Hydra.
