Cargo ship with 21 Filipino crewmen hits rocks on Greek island
The Merchant Marine Ministry says coast guard vessels are heading for the northern coast of Andros where the Good Faith ran aground early Wednesday.
The freighter, which was empty of cargo, was heading from the Greek port of Eleusis to Odessa in the Black Sea. The ministry said the crew consisted of 21 Filipinos and one Romanian.
The rescue effort was hampered by adverse weather, as Greece was hit by a cold spell with snow falling in central Athens.
