Norwegian Ship Sinking After Ramming by Greek Tanker

Norway has evacuated the entire crew of one of its warships after it collided in a fjord with a Greek-managed oil tanker.

Seven people were slightly injured in the collision in Hjeltefjord, near Bergen, in the early hours of Thursday, rescuers say.

Officials said the KNM Helge Ingstad may sink after the collision with tanker Sola TS.

The Maltese-flagged tanker, managed by the Tsakos Group based in Athens, had left an oil shipment terminal with a cargo of North Sea crude oil, Reuters news agency reports. It was only slightly damaged and it appears that it has not spilled any oil.

The KNM Helgeelge Ingstad had been returning from NATO military exercises.
