Ukrainian rescue services have resumed search for eight missing crewmembers
Ukrainian rescue services have resumed search for eight missing crewmembers of a Bulgarian cargo ship that sank Thursday in the Azov Sea between Ukraine and Russia, an emergencies service spokesman said Friday.

The Vanessa, carrying scrap metal, with 11 crew members, of whom 10 were Bulgarian citizens and one a citizen of Ukraine, sank at 6.00 a.m. Moscow time (3 a.m. GMT) Thursday in the Sea of Azov, about 30 miles from the Kerch Strait. One Bulgarian mechanic has been rescued, and two bodies have been found by now, emergencies officials said.

Earlier it was reported that four bodies were discovered. Yesterday the search was suspended because of complicated weather conditions.

Last November a storm in the Kerch Strait sank four ships and an oil tanker. At least six sailors died. The incident resulted in about 2,000 metric tons of fuel oil spilling into the sea.
