Bosphorus closed after cargo ship collides with shore in Istanbul

A cargo ship collided with shore in Istanbul's Bosphorus strait on Friday, according to broadcaster CNNTurk and a witness, prompting authorities to close the picturesque and crowded waterway running through Turkey's largest city.
There were no immediate reports of casualties, the broadcaster said. The Tribeca Shipping Agency said the Bosphorus was closed to traffic.
The Liberian-flagged Songa Iridum was headed for the port of Ambarli in Istanbul, according to Refinitiv Eikon shipping data.
