Firefighters fought an oil tanker fire in Istanbul's Bosporus Strait on Monday after a late-night collision with a freighter killed at least 15 seamen and choked one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, officials said. Sixteen other crew members from the two ships were missing, and there seemed little hope of finding survivors from the inferno that ripped through the tanker Nassia and the Shipbroker, a cargo ship, Sunday night. Both flew the Cypriot flag.

A cargo ship carrying illegal immigrants broke apart in a storm just off Turkey's southern coast Monday, killing at least six people. Dozens more were missing and feared dead, locked in a cargo area that plunged to the seabed. At least 83 people--10 crew members and 73 passengers--were on board the Georgian-flagged Pati when it foundered early Monday, officials said.
