    A Syrian-flag cargo ship sank early Monday as it was anchored in Vatika Bay in Neapoli, Laconia prefecture, but its eight-member crew were all safe, local harbour authority sources said.

    They said the "Lina Star" sank at dawn after it took on water in its engine room as it was anchored in Vatika Bay about 1.5 miles from shore.

    The crew -- one Egyptian and seven Syrian seamen -- had been picked up by a coastguard boat that rushed to the freighter's assistance.

    The Lina Star had set sail from Sevastopol port in the Ukraine, loaded with sodium, for Algeria.

    The sources said southwesterly winds were blowing in the region at a velocity of six beaufort at the time of the incident.
