The Turkish offshore supply vessel ‘KOFSO’ carrying the 12 crew members of the ‘Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha’ seismic exploration vessel have been stranded a mile off the coast of Karpas Peninsula, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.

According to the latest reports, the boat ran aground after it began to take on water when one of the engines broke down. The crew, however, managed to repair the damage.

The boat is now in a stable position with no injuries sustained on board.

Two coast guard cutters and the ‘Söndüren 10’ and ‘Barbaros’ are on their way to assist ‘KOFSO’.
