Turkish cargo ship, Greek warship collide in Aegean
ATHENS - The Associated Press
A Greek navy statement said the Turkish-flagged Karmate put on speed and made off into Turkish waters after the pre-dawn incident on May 4, ignoring radio messages from the Armatolos gunboat to stop.
The navy said the collision in Greek waters southeast of the island of Lesbos was caused by the Turkish ship breaching international shipping safety rules.
Thr 180-foot (55-meter) Armatolos was taking part in a NATO operation to stop migrant-smuggling, the navy said.
