dpa/GNA – Two bodies have been found after a Russian freighter sunk in the Black Sea off the Turkish coast early on Sunday, reported the Turkish news agency Anadolu, citing regional Governor Sinan Guner.

Five survivors have also been rescued. The ship had a crew of 13, all Russians, though some Turkish media have reported the proper number is 15.

Rescue efforts were made harder by storms and strong waves, but rescuers are still seeking survivors. The Turkish navy has also contributed a ship to the effort, tweeted the Defence Ministry.
The cause of the accident remains unclear.
