At least seven seafarers are presumed missing after their vessel, the Turkey-flagged cargo ship Tinaztepe S, sank off the coast of Libya due to inclement weather conditions, local media reported.
Libyan naval forces rescued six of the 1979-built ship’s crewmembers following the incident, which occurred on March 16.
The vessel sank some 2 nautical miles off the coast of Misrata, local media cited a navy spokesperson.
The authorities launched a search and rescue operation for the missing crew, however, rough weather at the site is reportedly hampering the rescue efforts.
According to AIS data provided by MarineTraffic, the 3,200 dwt cargo ship arrived at the Misrata anchorage on March 13.
