    Associated Press Employees at a Trader Joe’s supermarket in Massachusetts on Thursday became the latest workers at a major company to approve a labor union. The store in Hadley, about 80 miles west of Boston, is the first Trader Joe’s with an employees union, although workers at two other company locations have initiated unionization efforts. The union vote passed 45-31. Organizers at the store launched the effort in May in an open letter to company CEO Dan Bane citing concerns about pay, benefits and safety. About 80 non-supervisory employees were eligible to vote, including what the company calls crew members and merchants, who are customer service specialists. Now that the union has been approved, the next step is putting together a negotiating committee to hammer out a contract with the California-based company, which has about 550 stores nationwide, union organizer and 18-year Trader Joe’s employee Maeg Yosef said. The Hadley union, called Trader Joe’s United, is independent, and not affiliated with a larger existing union, although organizers have received administrative and legal help from established unions, Yosef said. Workers from...
    "We were terribly saddened and shocked to hear that one of our crew members was the victim of a crime early this morning and has died as a result," a representative said. "We are working with local law enforcement as they continue to investigate. Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and we ask that you respect their privacy during this time." Police say that they have no suspects and no leads in the case, but that they will continue to reach out to local businesses and residents who may have inadvertently captured the crime on their surveillance cameras. "Law and Order: Organized Crime" is an offshoot of the famed "Law and Order" TV series which began over thirty years ago. "Organized Crime" features Christopher Meloni reprising his role as Detective Elliot Stabler. The second season concluded in May, and members of the show are currently filming a third season.

    The Los Angeles film industry has returned to forced masking indoors after county officials reported a higher number of coronavirus cases resulting in hospitalizations. “With new hospital admissions reaching more than 8 per week per 100,000 population, they will resume indoor masking requirements, along with several other safety measures,” L.A. public health officer Barbara Ferrer said Thursday, according to Variety. The industry’s agreement with its unions maintains that if eight or more people per 100,000 L.A. County residents are hospitalized for COVID, film and TV productions must return to mask wearing. L.A. authorities reported that the hospitalization rate rose to 8.1 this week. The film industry agreement was first set in place in May and is set to expire on July 15. “This industry has worked closely with their labor partners to institute Covid safety measures that create safety for all workers while being able to continue the important work,” Ferrer said in praise of the industry. “We do applaud them along with many other businesses that are taking advantage of the many tools that are available to keep workers...
    HONG KONG (AP) — An industrial support ship operating in the South China Sea has sunk with the possible loss of more than two dozen crew members, rescue services in Hong Kong said Saturday. Authorities dispatched planes and helicopters to aid in the rescue, with at least three people from the crew of 30 brought to safety as of 5:30 p.m. (1030 GMT) Saturday. The accident occurred about 300 kilometers (186 miles) south of Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Flying Service did not give the name or origin of the vessel. It said in a statement that crew members were negotiating difficulties brought on by Severe Tropical Storm Chaba, which was packing maximum winds of 110 kilometers (68 miles) per hour. The storm is expected to make landfall in the western part of the coastal province of Guangdong later Saturday. The Hong Kong service sent two fixed-wing aircraft and four helicopters for the rescue effort. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    A FLIGHT attendant has revealed secret hidden spots on planes that even crew members think are storage spaces. The big, secret spaces are actually for something much different. 1Flight attendants and crew members have special quartersCredit: Getty Images - Getty Large, widebody planes that are used for long-haul flights tend to be accommodating to more passengers and crew members. But the longer flights also mean that crew members and flight attendants are more likely to require rest. These planes are usually equipped with crew rest compartments.

    People’s faith in the media is about as solid as their faith in “gas station sushi,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) told Fox News on Monday. Kennedy joined America’s Newsroom and reacted to staffers for late-night host Stephen Colbert being arrested and charged with unlawful entry at a building near the U.S. Capitol. Kennedy called the crew “agenda journalists” and claimed they were trying to make Republicans “look bad.” I don’t have any inside information, Bill, but I’ve read about this. It looks to me like it’s just another example of a bunch of agenda journalists trying to make Democrats look good and Republicans look bad. And that’s why I’ve said it in another context. That’s why the American people, they are not fooled. They trust the media now like they trust gas station sushi. Many members of the media “have no self awareness,” the senator added. Fox News’ Bill Hemmer informed Kennedy the crew was likely filming comedy skits for Colbert’s show, though the senator claimed they were knocking on doors and trying to catch Republicans off guard, though Kennedy didn’t say from where he had gotten this information. In a Monday update to...
    On Thursday, two actors on a Netflix series were killed and six other crew members were injured in a van crash near Mulegé, a city on the Baja California Sur peninsula. Now friends of the victims—Raymundo Garduño Cruz and Juan Francisco González Aguilar, known professionally as “Paco Mufote”—are lashing out against Netflix and the independent production company behind the show, The Chosen One, claiming that the cast members had been complaining about poor transport and logistics. Liliana Conlisk Gallegos, a friend of Mufote who has worked in the film industry, and is an artist and scholar, told The Daily Beast that she was heartbroken and outraged to hear of accusations that the crew may have been exploited to save money. “Paco touched the hearts of everyone he ever met, he was a great actor with a strong trajectory,” Gallegos told The Daily Beast. “He loved acting and playing music more than anything in the world and he dedicated himself to it, many times suffering economic hardship. He sacrificed for his love of acting.” “It fills me with rage that there...

    A MYSTERIOUS plane visited Russian and Venezuela in the weeks before the Iranian-linked aircraft was impounded in Argentina. The Boeing 747 plane was held in Buenos Aires this week where Argentinian authorities searched it and seized it on suspicion of intelligence activities and held 19 crew members. 8 Among the crew were five Iranians, alleged to have links to the Quds Force, the shadowy wing of of Iran’s terrorist-designated Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) responsible for clandestine foreign operations. Iranian dissidents have warned the plane's detention is proof that the regime is spreading state-sponsored terrorism to the Americas - right in the backyard of the US. The aircraft is suspected to have been carrying members of the IRGC's terrorist group, the Quds Force. And the rogue state is also believed to provide weapons to nations such as Venezuela, but no arms were found on the Boeing 747.

    Washington (CNN)The Navy's top leaders visited the USS George Washington following a number of recent suicides among crew members as the Navy continues to investigate the deaths. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro held group discussions with sailors of different ranks, while Adm. Michael Gilday, the chief of naval operations, toured the ship to meet with the crew and observe the living conditions. Over the past 12 months, seven members of the crew have died, including four by suicide, prompting the Navy to open an investigation into the command climate and culture on board the Nimitz-class carrier.Former and current crew members who spoke with CNN earlier this month described "awful" conditions, including frequent power outages and unbearable temperatures. "This is the very bottom," one sailor currently assigned to the carrier told CNN. In early May, the Navy announced that sailors who did not want to live on the ship could move to different housing. Of the approximately 420 sailors who lived on board, nearly 300 have so far chosen to leave, the Navy said Tuesday. US Navy chief defends plan...

    An Air Force crew has been disciplined for landing a Hercules aircraft at Martha's Vineyard to pick up a vintage BMW motorcycle one of them owned. The crew from the 403rd Wing of the Hurricane Hunters in Mississippi have been punished for 'abusing government assets' after they were seen loading up the vintage bike onto their aircraft on March 25.  The five-person team was reportedly downgraded after Air Force leadership found out about the excursion on March 27, according to CNN Politics, meaning each member lost ratings or credentials that they will have to earn back and could potentially push them under their required number of flight hours to be able to fly. The military also grounded the men, forcing another crew to pick up the members and the aircraft, according to KFOR 4 News.  'We hold our reservists to the highest standards of conduct and these actions are not tolerated,' Colonel Stuart Rubio, the commander of the 403rd Wing, said in a statement, viewed by CNN Politics.  The 403rd Wing of the Hurricane Hunters from Mississippi fly their Hercules (pictured)...
    A sailor aboard a large cargo ship off the coast of California has pleaded guilty in federal court to the fatal stabbing another crew member, saying he feared for his life. Michael Dequito Monegro, 43, of the Philippines, stabbed his supervisor 17 times in the face and body using a pair of knives and then surrendered to the ship’s captain when it was apparent that the victim was dead, according to a federal affidavit. The crime occurred Sept. 20, 2020, after a two-week voyage from Shanghai to Los Angeles. Monegro pleaded guilty Monday in LA. The incident placed the MSC Ravenna in jeopardy, as it took the captain and crew away from crucial duties at a point in which the ship was 80 miles away from the Port of Los Angeles, the affidavit said. “An emergency aboard a large vessel typically strains the mental capacity of the Captain, officers, and crewmembers,” the affidavit reads. “An onboard emergency causes mental fatigue and is a source of stress and distraction for all involved. Such stresses are exacerbated when officers and crewmembers fear...

    The Kremlin refused to answer mounting questions on Tuesday about the fate of sailors on board its most powerful warship after it was reportedly sunk by Ukrainian missiles last week, claiming it is “not authorized” to do so. While Ukraine said several crew members on board the Moskva, the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet, were killed, Moscow has denied that its ship was downed by Ukraine, claiming it was badly damaged after an “ammunition” fire, and repeatedly insisted that all 500 crew members were safely evacuated before it went down “in a storm.” Amid numerous reports of Moskva crew members’ families searching for their missing loved ones and publicly mourning dead sailors on social media, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, immediately shut down all questioning on Tuesday. “All communication is only through the Defense Ministry,” he said, adding that “we are not authorized to release anything.” Family members of missing crew members have accused the defense ministry of trying to “hush up” the deaths to prevent further humiliation for the Russian military after several setbacks in...
    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Six members of a robbery crew San Jose police described as “prolific” were arrested following a months-long investigation of smash-and-grab robberies at jewelry stores across the Bay Area. The suspects, some armed with guns and pepper spray, would enter jewelry stores wearing masks and use sledgehammers and other tools to break open glass display cases and take thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. The robbers would then run to waiting vehicles and flee the scene. READ MORE: Arson Suspect Arrested In Massive San Jose Home Depot FirePolice said the crimes happened between October 2021 and January 2022 in San Jose.

    Russia’s Defense Ministry released a brief video on Saturday of the head of the Navy meeting with crew members of the sunken warship Moskva, as social media posts have surfaced that appear to confirm at least one death on board. In a 26-second video—the first public appearance of the crew since Moscow admitted the country’s most powerful battleship had sunk—Admiral Nikolai Yevmenov is seen meeting with crew members in Sevastopol. About 100 sailors can be seen, although at least 500 were on board at the time the ship went down after Ukrainian officials said they successfully struck it with at least one Neptune missile. Moscow, which admitted the ship had been “badly damaged” but blamed it on an explosion of ammunition on board, has claimed all crew members were rescued without providing any details on their whereabouts after the disaster. Ukrainian authorities have said some of the crew of the ship that was famously told, “Go fuck yourself” by a Ukrainian serviceman did not survive. At least one crew member appears to have been publicly mourned on the Russian networking...
    The crew of a Canadian charter airline has been thrown in jail in the Dominican Republic after they reported a huge stash of cocaine on the plane. Pivot Airlines said its five crew members found the contraband on the aircraft while grounded at the Punta Cana airport on April 5, and reported it to local police in the Dominican Republic and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The plane had arrived in the Dominican Republic on March 31 and was scheduled to fly to Toronto.  Eight black gym bags, each containing 25 smaller packages of cocaine, totaling 200 packages, were located in the aircraft's control compartments, according to the Dominican Republic's National Drug Control Directorate (DNCD).  Local police say the cocaine is worth about $25 million, the Independent reported.   However, the airline said the crew 'averted a likely air disaster that could have been caused by the extra weight and the flammable packages being close to electrical equipment'.  Their identities have not been revealed, but the crew included the captain, first officer, two cabin crew and a maintenance engineer.   Eight black gym...
    Terrified JetBlue passengers on a storm-tossed JFK-bound flight were caught on video pleading with crew members to let them off the plane after it touched down in Newark following several aborted attempts to land at the New York City airport.  'I’m not going back in the air,' one passenger can be heard yelling at flight officials as the plane languished at Newark Liberty International Airport for over an hour. Meanwhile, another man is seen begging crew members to let him exit the plane, which had been scheduled to land at JFK after a flight from Cancun, Mexico.

I don’t want to go to jail but it’s not right,' he went on to tell officials.  However, crew members would not unlock the doors and kept the packed plane on the tarmac until the thunderstorms passed and they could make the quick flight to JFK.  Scroll down for video  Irate passenger yells, 'I’m...
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg warned airline passengers not to be a 'jerk' as record fines were levied on two unruly passengers on Friday. 'Look. It's one thing to be grumpy on a flight. I feel that way sometimes,' Buttigieg said Friday during an appearance on ABC's The View. 'But yeah, it's another thing to endanger flight crews and to endanger fellow passengers. We have no tolerance for that. The FAA is actually getting ready to announce record fines on people who have done this.'  'If you're on an airplane, don't be a jerk,' he advised. 'Don't endanger your fellow passengers.' His advice came as the Federal Aviation Administration on Friday issued its highest fines to date on passengers: a $81,950 fine on an American Airlines passenger who shoved a flight attendant and spit on crew members; and a $75,000 fine on a Delta Air Lines passenger who bit a fellow passenger after trying to hug and kiss another.  'The bottom line is if you're on an airplane, and you endanger flight crews and fellow passengers, you may be referred for criminal...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The man accused of killing a local Uber driver and mother of four appeared before a judge for the first time Wednesday. Calvin Crew, 22, is accused of killing Christi Spicuzza, 38, and leaving her body in a wooded area along Rosecrest Drive in February. In the courtroom Wednesday, prosecutors played a 20-minute clip of dash camera footage captured by Spicuzza’s rear-facing camera that she operated during her trips employed as an Uber driver. The clip shows a man who police believe to be Crew entering Spicuzza’s vehicle. Spicuzza tried to talk to him, even asking him if he had a nice day, but he does not answer. Nearly 20 minutes into the clip, he moves from the seat behind the front passenger seat to the center and puts what appears to be a black gun at the base of Spicuzza’s skull. This happens immediately following Spicuzza pulling up to the trip’s destination and asking him which side of the street he wants her to pull towards. Spicuzza remains calm and said, “stop it man” and...
    A new report raises questions about Tom Cruise’s presentation of himself as the safety-conscious star of “Mission: Impossible 7,” who was so vehement about protecting the production from COVID-19 that he notoriously yelled expletives at crew members who purportedly violated COVID safety protocols. Indeed, the investigative report by the Hollywood Reporter said it is believed that Cruise didn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine, at least as of June 2021. He also remained unvaccinated after an audio recording of his infamous dressing down of crew members was leaked to the media in December 2020. The report by veteran journalist Kim Masters also said that Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie contracted COVID-19 in an outbreak in June 2021, with the outbreak forcing production of “Mission: Impossible” to shut down for the seventh time. Neither Cruise nor McQuarrie were believed to be vaccinated at the time, even though vaccines had become widely available in the U.S. and U.K., according to Masters. McQuarrie’s illness also was so severe that he was hospitalized in London, Masters added. The outbreak was blamed on dancers who were shooting...
    Passengers and crew members tested positive for COVID-19 aboard a 15-day Princess Cruise trip to the Panama Canal that returned Sunday to the Port of San Francisco. Those affected aboard the ship the Ruby Princess were either asymptomatic or showed mild symptoms of COVID-19 and were isolated and quarantined, Princess Cruises said in a statement. The cruise line did not say how many guests and crew members tested positive, or at what point in the trip they did so. The ship has since departed San Francisco for a 15-day cruise to Hawaii. The cruise line requires guests to show a negative COVID-19 test and proof that they were fully vaccinated at least 14 days before the start of the trip.

    (AP) — Roughly 15 years before Herman Melville introduced the world to Moby Dick, a whaling ship from Massachusetts sank near the mouth of the Mississippi River. Nearly 190 years later, experts say, it’s still the only whaler known to have gone down in the Gulf of Mexico, where the threat of enslavement at Southern ports posed a risk for Black and mixed-race men who often were part of whaling crews. Researchers checking out odd shapes during undersea scanning work on the sandy ocean floor believe they’ve finally found the shipwreck about 70 miles offshore from Pascagoula, Mississippi. It was documented in February by remotely operated robots in about 6,000 feet of water. Not much is left of the two-masted wooden brig thought to be Industry, a 65-foot-long whaler that foundered after a storm in 1836. An old news clipping found in a library shows its 15 or so crew members were rescued by another whaling ship and returned home to Westport, Massachusetts, said researcher Jim Delgado of SEARCH Inc.

    LONDON (AP) — The Dubai government-owned ferry operator at the center of a bitter labor dispute in Britain says it didn’t break the law when it fired 786 crew members without advance notice because they all worked on ships registered outside the U.K. P&O Ferries also acknowledged in a letter dated Wednesday that the way the dismissals were carried out caused distress for workers and said it had offered “generous compensation” to those involved. But the company also said it couldn’t have survived without “fundamentally changed crewing arrangements” and that it took the action to save 2,200 other jobs. The dismissed seafarers are being replaced by cheaper workers employed by a third-party crew provider. “Restructuring our workforce in this way was not a course of action that we ever wanted to take as an organization,” chief executive Peter Hebblethwaite said in a letter to government ministers. “We did this as a last resort and only after full consideration of all other options.” The letter came in response to Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng’s request for further information amid outrage from...
    More On: kevin spacey Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey spotted dining alone amid legal battle Mena Suvari details ‘weird and unusual’ Kevin Spacey encounter on set Kevin Spacey could return to big screen in film about accused pedophile Sexual assault lawsuit against Kevin Spacey set to be dismissed Former “House of Cards” crew members who testified Kevin Spacey sexually harassed them while working on the popular Netflix show could be pulled into an ongoing civil suit against the disgraced actor.  A New York judge ordered Spacey to notify former crew members that their identities and their depositions could be publicly disclosed in an unrelated sexual assault case filed by actor Anthony Rapp against Spacey.  The crew depositions stem from an arbitration case filed by “House of Cards” production company, MCR, which won a $31 million ruling against Spacey who was found to have violated the company’s sexual harassment policy. According to the November 2021 arbitration petition, Spacey breached the show’s harassment policies, which led to Spacey’s suspension, and eventually, the demise of the Netflix series.  One former crew member who testified...
    OSLO, Norway (AP) – The prime minister of Norway says four U.S. service members have died in a plane crash during NATO drills. Jonas Gahr Støre tweeted that the service members were participating in the NATO exercise “Cold Response,” which is taking place in northern Norway. He wrote: “Our deepest sympathies go to the soldiers´ families, relatives and fellow soldiers in their unit.” The annual drills in Norway are unrelated to the war in Ukraine. This year they included around 30,000 troops, 220 aircraft and 50 vessels from 27 countries. Non-NATO members Finland and Sweden are also participating. The exercises began on March 14 and end on April 1. According to the Norwegian police, the American V-22B Osprey aircraft that crashed belonged to the U.S. Marine Corps. The aircraft had a crew of four and was out on a training mission in Nordland County on Friday. It was on its way north to Bodø, where it was scheduled to land just before 6 p.m. Friday. The plane crashed in Gråtådalen in Beiarn, south of Bodø. Police said a search and...
    LONDON (AP) — Unions were set to protest at British ports Friday after major ferry operator P&O Ferries fired 800 U.K. crew members to replace them with cheaper contract staff. The British government expressed outrage at the mass firings — conducted by Zoom message — but said it could do little to reverse them. Government minister James Heappey said “P&O has behaved appallingly,” but he did not believe the company’s actions were illegal. “Ultimately, it is not something the government can stop P&O from doing,” he told the BBC. “Now, the focus will be on supporting those who have lost their jobs.” P&O said it had no choice but to cut costs after the coronavirus pandemic hammered its finances, leading it to post a 100 million pound ($132 million) loss last year. The ferry operator, a unit of Dubai-government owned logistics giant DP World, said its survival was “dependent on making swift and significant changes now.’’ The company canceled ferry crossings on routes linking England to Ireland, Northern Ireland the Netherlands and France, including the Dover-Calais route that carries a...
    Getty Justin Haley's team lost its appeal. The sanctioning body has made a decision regarding appeals by the No. 31 team of Kaulig Racing and the No. 38 team of Front Row Motorsports. NASCAR has upheld penalties levied against both teams after they lost wheels in points-paying events and violated Section 10.5.2.6 (Safety Penalties and Penalty Options) of the NASCAR Rule Book. NASCAR announced on March 16 that two separate appeals panels had upheld the penalties, confirming that each team would lose its crew chief and two crew members. The No. 31 team, which lost a wheel during the Daytona 500, will move forward for the next four events without crew chief Trent Owens and crew members Jacob Nelson (tire changer) and Marshall McFadden (jackman). The No. 38 team, which lost a wheel at Auto Club Speedway, will have to compete during the next four events without crew chief Seth Barbour and crew members Jourdan Osinskie and Tanner Andrews.

    The armorer for Rust is not letting Alec Baldwin off the hook for last year's tragic on-set shooting in New Mexico that killed one member of the Western film's staff and injured another. Responding to Baldwin's recent court filing in which he tried to evade liability, armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed insisted he violated gun safety protocols. ALEC BALDWIN ATTEMPTS TO DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM BLAME FOR RUST SHOOTING: FILING “Mr. Baldwin knew that he could never point a firearm at crew members under any circumstances and had a duty of safety to his fellow crew members,” Gutierrez Reed's representatives said in a statement, per CNN. "Yet he did point the gun at Halyna before the fatal incident against all rules and common sense." Baldwin claims cinematographer Halyna Hutchins told him to cock a revolver as they rehearsed a sequence in the movie, according to his arbitration demand filed last Friday that insisted Baldwin was not responsible for Hutchins's death. Her family included him in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him last month in the First...

    GANDER, Newfoundland (AP) — A Canadian military search and rescue helicopter crashed at an airbase in Newfoundland during a training exercise, injuring two of the six crew members, officials said Thursday. The Royal Canadian Air Force said in a series of tweets that the CH-149 Cormorant helicopter was conducting “hovering maneuvers” at the Gander airport, which is next to the airbase. “Two members are currently in hospital receiving treatment,” the air force said. “Four members have been released and are with their squadron members at this time.” Officials would not comment on the condition of the hospitalized crew members. The CH-149 Cormorant is a long-range aircraft that can operate in severe conditions, according to the air force’s website. The air force said its flight safety directorate has begun an investigation into what happened. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea’s military on Wednesday returned a North Korean boat and its seven crew members across the countries’ disputed western sea boundary a day after they drifted into waters near a South Korean border island. South Korea’s navy fired warning shots on Tuesday to chase away a North Korean patrol vessel that temporarily crossed the so-called Northern Limit Line while pursuing the boat near Baekryeong island. The seven crew members told South Korean military officials they drifted south of the boundary because of navigation mistakes and mechanical problems and expressed a desire to return to North Korea, South Korea’s Defense Ministry said. South Korea’s navy has often fired warning shots to repel North Korean vessels crossing the countries’ poorly marked sea border, but there also have been some deadly clashes over the years. South Korea blamed North Korea for an attack on a South Korean warship that killed 46 sailors in 2010, but the North has denied responsibility. South Korea has patrolled waters around the Northern Limit Line for decades after it was drawn up...

    Two crew members for a British television news channel were injured while escaping an attack by Russian forces near the capital of Ukraine on Monday The Sky News team was driving to Kyiv when they heard a small explosion and a tire burst, one of the crew members wrote in recalling the event. Shortly after, the crew found itself in a hail of bullets that tore through the vehicle. The crew initially thought the attack was from a Ukrainian army checkpoint unit that was mistakenly attacking them but later found out a saboteur Russian reconnaissance squad was responsible. The crew members escaped from the car and made their way to an embankment. Two crew members were shot in the process. One of the victims, Stuart Ramsay, said it felt "more like being punched." FOX NEWS'S GREG GUTFELD SAYS MOTHER-IN-LAW ESCAPED WAR IN UKRAINE "At the bottom, we regrouped," Ramsay wrote. "The five of us were alive. We couldn't believe it. We were in shock, no doubt about it, but elated to be alive." Ramsay...
    Crew members were rescued from an Estonian cargo ship off the coast of Odessa on Thursday hours after the vessel, which was caught in a crossfire between Ukrainian and Russian military forces, sank. Six crew members were pulled from the Helt, which sank near the coast of Odessa, Ukraine, due to shelling from Russians, according to the Ukrainian Parliament. All six crew members are in "satisfactory condition," the Administration of Seaports of Ukraine told Parliament. RUSSIAN OIL GIANT CALLS FOR CEASEFIRE IN UKRAINE: REPORT The explosion may have been caused by a mine, preliminary reports indicated. But Capt. Igor Ilves, managing director of Estonian-based Vista Shipping Agency, which owns the ship, told the BBC the company did not believe the explosion was caused by a mine. The crew comprised four Ukrainians, one Russian, and one Belarusian, Ilves, who was not aboard the ship when it sank, said. Helt was not carrying cargo and was anchored off the coast of Odessa in the Black Sea, according to Ilves. Odessa is a major port city...
