A Dominica-flagged general cargoship at anchor at Mariupol has sunk after three days of Russian shelling.

After suffering attacks beginning on Sunday, a fire broke out aboard the 6,142-gt Azburg (built 1995) on Tuesday and sank, Dominica flag state officials said.

The flag state authority said the crew members were able to evacuate and find refuge on other vessels, with one left wounded and in need of medical assistance.
