Cargo ship with almost 15 000 sheep overturns in Black sea

Rescuers were struggling to save 14 600 sheep after the cargo ship they were being carried on capsized in the Black Sea off the coast of Romania.
The Queen Hind, bound for Saudi Arabia, overturned on Sunday shortly after leaving Romania’s Midia port.
The crew of 20 Syrians and one Lebanese were rescued, together with 32 sheep, two of which were pulled from the water, said Ana-Maria Stoica, a spokeswoman for the rescue services: “The rescue operation is ongoing ... We hope that the sheep inside the ship’s hold are still alive”.
