Cargo ship with 12 crew capsizes in Black Sea off Russian coast

A cargo ship carrying grain from southern Russia to Turkey has capsized during a storm in the Black Sea with 12 crew members on board.

The Russian marine transport agency told that the crew of the Turkish-owned ship includes nine Ukrainians, two Russians and one Georgian.
The ship, named the Heroes of Arsenal, capsized in a storm before dawn on Wednesday near the Kerch Strait. The emergency services say the high waves and strong winds were hampering the rescue operation.

So far, three crew members have been saved while authorities are still searching for some of the seamen who are still missing.

Local investigators said they had launched a criminal probe to determine whether violations of transportation safety could have been behind the sinking.
