Cargo ship sinks off Crete, Greek rescuers seek 3 crew members reported missing

Greek rescue teams are searching for three people reported missing after a cargo ship sank off the southern island of Crete.

A Merchant Marine Ministry statement says four other crew members were rescued by a merchant vessel in the area, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of Crete.

The ministry said the ship that foundered Thursday was Togo-flagged, but did not provide its name, destination or nationalities of the crew.
