Nine Russian and Ukrainian women, including two minors, will be deported after authorities busted an international prostitution ring on one of the world's largest yachts, police said Friday.

Anatolia news agency reported on Friday that prosecutors were also questioning 10 other people, who allegedly ran a prostitution ring aboard the 408-foot Savarona, which was once used by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey.

Authorities are trying to cancel the lease of the boat and turn it into a museum.
