According to Reuters:

Jun 29 – Turkey’s Coast Guard rescue the 11 crew members of a Malta-flagged ship after their vessel collided with a container ship in the Aegean Sea.

No one was killed and both ships remained afloat after the accident, which occurred late on Saturday (June 27) in a shipping channel about 10 miles off the Turkish island of Bozcaada, the Anatolian news agency said.

The “Marti Princess,” a bulk-freight cargo vessel, took on water after colliding with the German-flagged “Renata Schulte” container ship, which was travelling from Casablanca to the Turkish port of Tuzla, the state-run agency said.

Turkish coast guard vessels remained at the scene to prevent environmental contamination, Anatolian also said.
