A Panama-flagged container ship with a foreign 20-member crew was adrift off the northeasterner coast of the Cycladic island of Kea on Monday morning, after suffering an engine failure.

A Greek coast guard vessel is sailing close to CS TINA but the freighter's captain has not yet requested assistance. Winds up to 4 on the Beaufort scale were blowing in the area.
