Doctors in Montenegro say one sailor has died and three more had to be hospitalised after an accident on a Greek ferry near the country’s Adriatic coast.

Doctors at the general hospital in the coastal town of Meljine say one of the sailors remains in life-threatening condition after a suspected poisoning late Friday, apparently by fuel fumes.

Police saying an investigation is underway but have released no details. Local media reported the sailors were from Sri Lanka, Egypt and India.

The ship ‘Horizon’ owned by a Greek company but sailing under a Cypriot flag was heading to a nearby Montenegrin shipyard for repairs.
