Israelis abandon ship in Rhodes


Some 930 Israeli tourists abandoned a ship docked in the Port of Rhodes.

One of the gas pumps developed a problem on Tuesday that forced the ship, known as “The Dream,” to list slightly, according to the Greek Coast Guard.

All the tourists disembarked safely and were taken to hotels. The Greek government was working to find them flights back to Israel.

The ship, under Bahamas registration, was on its last leg of a Mediterranean cruise.
