Tripoli, Jan 6 (UNI) The Libyan navy said that it rescued a crew of 14 members on a cargo ship that drifted off Tripoli's port on Wednesday because of high waves and bad weather.

"A cargo ship called Atlantis carrying a Liberian flag drifted as a result of sea disturbance and high waves while trying to enter the port of Tripoli," the navy's information office said in a statement on Saturday, reported sources.

The ship hit rocks and water leaked into the engines, the statement said.

All 14 crew members rescued are Indian nationals, it added.
