10 Killed After Turkish Navy Tugboat Capsizes in Shipyard
Eight of the dead were military personnel and two were civilian workers, local media said. Seventeen other military personnel were injured.
The tugboat, TCG Degirmendere, was being lowered into the sea after maintenance work at the Izmir shipyard when it suddenly listed to one side, taking on water, the military said in a statement. (Writing by Ece Toksabay; Editing by Louise Ireland)
