ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Togo-flagged ship collided with a Russian intelligence vessel near Turkey’s Black Sea Coast on Thursday, and some 78 crew members had been evacuated from the Russian ship, a Turkish coastal safety official told Reuters.

Broadcaster NTV said earlier the Russian vessel collided with a ship carrying livestock. The Turkish official did not give any details on the Togo-flagged ship, or the condition of its crew.
