Turkish helicopters Monday scour the Black Sea in search of 11 sailors who went missing when their ship sank in heavy storms that killed at least nine people.

The Kafkametler cargo vessel went down with 12 crew on board after hitting a breakwater about 200 km east of Istanbul on Sunday while trying to seek shelter from violent winds and waves.

Interior Minister Ali said the body of one sailor had been recovered and the search for the 11 others resumed after the storms had died down.
