    (CNN)A Russian merchant ship loaded with grain stolen in Ukraine has been turned away from at least one Mediterranean port and is now in the Syrian port of Latakia, according to shipping sources and Ukrainian officials. CNN has identified the vessel as the bulk carrier Matros Pozynich. On April 27, the ship weighed anchor off the coast of Crimea, and turned off its transponder. The next day it was seen at the port of Sevastopol, the main port in Crimea, according to photographs and satellite images.The Matros Pozynich is one of three ships involved in the trade of stolen grain, according to open source research and Ukrainian officials. Crimea, annexed by Russia in 2014, produces little wheat because of a lack of irrigation. But the Ukrainian regions to its north, occupied by Russian forces since early March, produce millions of tons of grain every year. Ukrainian officials say thousands of tons are now being trucked into Crimea.

    More than 850 cattle that spent the last two months on a ship adrift in the Mediterranean should now be killed, vets have said. The cattle have been kept on the Karim Allah, which docked on the south-eastern Spanish port of Cartagena on Thursday, in what animal rights activists described as 'hellish' conditions. A confidential report by Spanish government veterinarians suggested the animals should now be euthanized and video from the port appeared to show preparations are being made to unload the cattle, the Guardian reported.  'In the video you see the closed containers, they are not for living livestock,' said Miquel Masramón, lawyer for the cattle ship’s management company, on Saturday.  The cattle (pictured) have been kept on the Karim Allah, which docked on the south-eastern Spanish port of Cartagena on Thursday Pictured, the Karim Allah, which is where the cattle have been kept in 'hellish' conditions, according to animal rights activists He told the newspaper: 'We have no official information, but we think they will discharge the animals and then kill them with electrical guns.'

    ISTANBUL (AP) — The Turkish research vessel at the heart of an energy dispute between Turkey and Greece is back at port. In a tweet Monday, Turkey’s energy ministry said the Oruc Reis had returned to port in Antalya after completing two-dimensional seismic research in the Demre field. Ship tracker MarineTraffic showed the survey ship had docked. Tensions between the two neighbors and nominal NATO allies escalated over the summer with a military build-up after Turkey sent the survey ship, escorted by navy frigates, into disputed waters in the eastern Mediterranean. The move prompted Greece to also send its warships, and both countries conducted military exercises to assert their claims. NATO intervened, organizing technical talks between the two countries’ militaries to prevent a potential armed conflict. Ankara says the Greek and Greek Cypriot governments are impinging on the energy rights of Turkey and breakaway northern Cyprus by setting maritime boundaries according to their own interests and attempting to exclude Turkey from potential oil and gas reserves. Turkey says maritime boundaries for hydrocarbon resources should be calculated from the mainland but...

    CAIRO — At least 74 migrants drowned after their Europe-bound ship capsized off the coast of Libya on Thursday, the UN’s migration agency said, in the latest in a series of at least eight shipwrecks in the Central Mediterranean since last month. The boat was carrying over 120 migrants, including women and children, when it capsized off the coast of the Libyan port of al-Khums, said the International Organization for Migration. Only 47 people were rescued by the Libyan coast guard and fishermen and brought to shore. So far 31 bodies were retrieved as the search for the remaining victims continued, added the IOM. In the years since the 2011 uprising that ousted and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, war-torn Libya has emerged as the dominant transit point for migrants hoping to get to Europe from Africa and the Middle East. Smugglers often pack desperate families into ill-equipped rubber boats that stall and founder along the perilous Central Mediterranean route. At least 20,000 people have died in those waters since 2014, according to the IOM. “The mounting loss of life...

    By Angeliki Koutantou ATHENS (Reuters) - The United States and Greece called on Monday for a peaceful resolution of maritime disputes in the east Mediterranean as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo began a two-day trip to Greece amid increased regional tension over energy resources. NATO allies Greece and Turkey, at loggerheads on a range of issues, have agreed to resume exploratory talks over contested maritime claims following weeks of tensions that culminated in a collision between their warships. "The United States and Greece .. reaffirmed their belief that maritime delimitation issues should be resolved peacefully in accordance with international law," the United States and Greece said in a joint statement after Pompeo met his Greek counterpart Nikos Dendias. The two countries are also ready to use "all appropriate means" to safeguard regional stability, they said after meeting in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki. Pompeo has previously said the United States is "deeply concerned" about Turkish actions in the east Mediterranean. Ankara infuriated Athens last month by sending a seismic survey ship into disputed waters, escorted by gunboats, to...

    ATHENS, Greece (AP) — The Greek government welcomed a Turkish survey vessel's return to port Sunday from a disputed area of the eastern Mediterranean that has been at the heart of a summer stand-off between Greece and Turkey over energy rights. The Oruc Reis research ship returned to near the southern Turkish port of Antalya for the first time in more than a month after Turkey announced in July that it was dispatching a vessel to work in waters that Greece claims are its exclusive jurisdiction. "This is a positive signal. We will see how this develops to make a proper assessment,″ Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas told TV channel Skai. The ship returned to Antalya after its Navtex, or international maritime safety advisory, for the waters between Turkey, Cyprus and the Greek island of Crete it had been in since Aug. 10 expired.

    ROME (AP) — A month after it rescued migrants in the Mediterranean at Malta’s request, a Danish-flagged chemical tanker awaited at sea Friday with low supplies and its passengers so despairing of ever making landfall that they say they feel like jumping into the sea. The Maersk Etienne rescued 27 migrants, including a pregnant woman and a child, from a flimsy fishing boat just before it sank in the central Mediterranean. Its owners, Maersk Tankers, said food and fresh water are running low. But despite weeks of contacts between Maltese authorities and company representatives, the 186-meter-long (610-foot) vessel remains stuck in international waters 17 miles off the small island nation with no solution in sight, Maersk Tankers said. Malta, like Italy, often balks at taking in rescued migrants, insisting that other EU nations should share the burden of caring for people rescued in the central Mediterranean, especially since many of the trafficked migrants want to reach northern Europe. The hardline positions have triggered other standoffs in the central Mediterranean, but this is one of the longest — and...
    ROME (AP) — A German-flagged charity boat says it has been waiting for several days for port permission so it can disembark 201 migrants rescued in the central Mediterranean. The charity Sea-Watch said Thursday that the migrants were rescued earlier in the week by the ship Sea-Watch 4, and that Malta rejected its port request. The Italian coast guard on Wednesday evacuated another migrant who had been aboard Sea-Watch 4, a teenager who had severe fuel burns. Among the migrants awaiting a port were several that were transferred to Sea-Watch 4 by a smaller boat, the Louise Michel, Sea-Watch Italy tweeted. According to Italian media, the Louise Michel is a former French coast guard motorboat put into service by activists for rescues in the Mediterranean after being painted by the street artist Bansky. Sea-Watch said waiting for a port off Malta were 27 migrants aboard the merchant ship which rescued them 22 days ago. Disembarking rescued migrants in Italy has become particularly politically sensitive during the pandemic. Last week, the governor of Sicily closed all migrant centers...
