Bulk carrier splits in two in Black Sea
Mongolian flag carrying Leonardo, a 114-meter-long dry cargo ship, started buckling and broke in two while on anchor off Istanbul's Kilyos coast.
Half of the ship was taken ashore by tugboats, while the remainder is in the water gradually sinking.
Turkish media reports said the ship, constructed in 1975, was going to Istanbul's Tuzla dockyard for repairs. ■
