Cargo Ship Grounds in Bulgaria

A Panamaflagged general cargo ship ran aground on Bulgaria’s coast in the Black Sea early Monday morning.

AIS ship tracking data shows the MV Vera Su was traveling at about 7 knots when it ran straight into the rocky shore near Cape Kaliakra.

Bulgarian National Radio reports no pollution or injuries as a result of the accident.

A photo released by Bulgarian prosecutors said the circumstances of the grounding are under investigation, including to determine whether a crime had been committed.
