Two Turkish merchant ships collided in thick fog in the Adriatic Sea, sinking one of the vessels and leaving 14 sailors missing and believed dead, Italian port officials said. Ubaldo Scarpati, head of the port authority in Manfredonia, in southern Italy, said the 1,700-ton Deval and the 1,713-ton Selin, both based in Istanbul, Turkey, collided off the Yugoslav island of Palagruza. The island is about halfway between Italy and Yugoslavia. The missing crew members were all from the Deval, which sank almost immediately after the collision.
