Two seafarers have lost their lives, while four others are missing after
a cargo ship sank in the Black Sea, according to the Turkish Coast Guard.

The Panama-flagged coal ship Volgo Balt 214 encountered
trouble and sank in rough weather conditions off the coast of Turkey in the
morning hours of January 7.
At the time of the incident, the 3,492 dwt vessel
was crewed by 13 sailors. The search and rescue teams managed to locate
and bring seven seafarers to safety, while relevant authorities confirmed that
two crew members were deceased.
Search and rescue teams are currently looking for the remaining four
unaccounted for sailors, however, inclement weather conditions at the site are
hampering search efforts.
The 1978-built Volgo Balt 214 was on its way from the Russian port of
Azov to Samsun, Turkey when it ran into trouble. Exact cause of the incident is
still not familiar.
A plane, three helicopters and two boats were taking part in the rescue
operation, according to the Turkish Coast Guard.
