ISTANBUL (AA) - Heavy fog led to a shutdown of vessel traffic late Sunday in Turkey’s Bosporus Strait, said Turkish officials.
Marine traffic in the Bosporus has been suspended as visibility is below a half mile, the Istanbul Port Directorate of the Transport and Infrastructure Ministry said in a statement.
All vessel passages from two directions were suspended as of 10:15 p.m. local time (0715GMT).
