Vessel traffic in the Bosphorus Strait had to be temporarily suspended. This was reported by the Turkish Coast Guard.
The reason for the suspension was the breakdown of the dry cargo ship VIVA ECLIPSE, which was heading from Tuzla to Russia. It is specified that the incident occurred near Uskudar.
The KURTARMA-8-9-10 tugs and the KEGM-3 boat were urgently sent to the dry cargo ship that had stopped moving.
