Cargo ship runs aground in Strait of Bonifacio
"The ship is stuck in the middle of the islands of the Natural Reserve of the Mouths of Bonifacio in a protected area that is environmentally very sensitive," the reserve's director Jean-Michel Culioli reported.
General cargo ship named RHODANUS ran aground on southern coast of Corsica which is a very close location to Strait of Bonifacio. The ship was en route from from Taranto Italy to Rhone France. The authorities reported that the ship didn’t respond to traffic control radio calls, trying to alert the bridge.
According to local sources and maritime officials, RHODANUS which includes 2,650 tonnes of steel coils and seven crew, ran into trouble in the Mouths of Bonifacio nature reserve in the early morning hours. Maritime police have boarded the ship.
