A Turkish cargo ship with 12 crew onboard sank off Turkiye's Black Sea coast during a storm on November 19 and authorities have been unable to make contact with the crew.

Axar.az informs that this was reported to Turkish Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya.

The captain of the Turkish-flagged Kafkametler had reported on Sunday morning that the ship was drifting toward a breakwater off Eregli, in northwest Turkiye's Zonguldak province, the provincial governor's office said earlier.

Mr Yerlikaya said the ship sunk after hitting the breakwater. The region was hit by powerful storms on Sunday and the governor's office said the bad weather prevented air and sea vessels from carrying out searches.

"When the adverse weather conditions improve, search and rescue activities will start immediately," Mr Yerlikaya told reporters.
