  • [01] Freighters collide off Messinia prefecture, 2 dead, 8 missing

    ANA-MPA -- Two of ten seamen who were missing on Monday morning after the freighter they were on board collided with another freighter, southwest of Sapienza island south of Messinia, were found dead.

    The Antigua-Barbuda-flagged freighter "Consouth" with 16 crew (one Filippino, 5 Russian and 10 Polish nationals) collided under unspecified conditions with Cook Islands-flagged freighter "Piri Reis" with a 17-member crew, all from Syria.

    A huge rescue operation is underway in the area including a C-130 military aircraft, a helicopter, four ships and coast guards vessels.

    "Piri Reis" had sailed from Algeria loaded with fertiliser destined for the Ukraine. According to initial reports, the freighter sank within seven minutes.

    "Consouth" freighter carried no cargo and had left from Turkey for Malta.
