A Coast Guard Command Forces landing craft vessel ploughed into moored yachts in Kyrenia old harbour yesterday.
The harbour is pretty packed most days and boat owners who keep their yachts there at high cost, have asked officials for a review of how the harbour is used, given the dangers of further such incidents.
Amateur footage shows the landing craft entering the harbour and inexplicably turning to starboard and striking moored vessels. One boat sank and four others were badly damaged. Fortunately, there were no explosions from fuel tanks.
