A rescue operation was launched Friday for a Turkish-flagged cargo ship that ran aground off the country’s northwestern Canakkale province. The incident occurred when a 70-meter-long (229-foot) cargo ship faced technical difficulties off Bozcaada, according to available information. After the Banu-S lost control and ran aground in the eastern part of Bozcaada, the captain briefed authorities on the incident and rescue boats were dispatched to the scene.
