No injuries in collistion between cruise ship, coast guard rescue vessel

There were no injuries in a collision on Sunday between a coast guard rescue vessel and the cruise ship "Aegean Paradise" east of the harbour on the island of Chios. 

According to authorities, the collision was caused due to misty conditions prevailing at the time and only the coast guard vessel, which was carrying 25 irregular migrants, suffered damages.

The irregular migrants were taken safely to Chios harbour, where the coast guard vessel was lifted out of the water for inspection and repairs.

The "Aegean Paradise" will remain at Chios harbour until an inspection is carried out by the shipping register it belongs to before continuing its journey.
