A cargo ship has run aground at Kalecik, ‘Kibris Gazetesi’ reports. The ship is currently listing at between 10-15 degrees and attempts to re-float the vessel are being hampered by bad weather.

Port Authority Director Serdar Canalkay has said that there is no fuel leaking and the vessel needs to be 150 meters offshore to be re-floated.

The Lebanese owners of the Togo-flagged dry cargo vessel ‘Karina’ are expected to arrive in Cyprus this evening.
