Six more people were rescued, traffic temporarily stopped
On Wednesday morning, a bulk carrier and a coast guard boat collided in Turkey's Bosphorus. The collision occurred at the southern end of the strait. It forced the capsize of the coast guard vessel.
The vessels movement was disrupted for several hours. The Bosphorus Strait is a key international shipping lane for oil and grain. More than 3 percent of the global crude supply - mainly from Russia and the Caspian Sea - pass through the 17-mile Bosphorus that connects the Black Sea to the Mediterranean.
