ATHENS - A cargo ship sailing under a Cook Islands flag sank early on Monday off southwestern Greece after colliding with another cargo carrier, and 10 of its crew are missing, the Greek coastguard said.

A coastguard official said the Cook Islands ship, the Pirireis, had collided with the ConSouth carrier sailing under an Antigua-Barbuda flag, about 75 nautical miles off the islet of Sapienza. The ConSouth was not seriously damaged and its entire crew of 16 is safe, the official said.
