World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Coast Guard teams rescued six crew members on a Russian cargo ship Tuesday after the vessel issued an emergency call off the Black Sea coast.

A helicopter crew plucked the six seamen from the vessel Nefterodoz 29, adrift by strong winds one mile off the coast of Bartin province, said a security official, who asked to remain anonymous due to restrictions to speaking to the media.

The vessel was carrying iron and had set sail from Russia’s Rostov Port.
