A Russian spy ship sank in the Black Sea Thursday after it crashed into a freighter near the Turkish coast, Russian officials said.

The ship, dubbed the Liman, crashed into a freighter about 25 miles away from the Bosphorous Strait. Turkish officials said 78 people were evacuated and rescued from the Russian ship. All were unhurt.

A shipping agent said conditions were foggy and visibility was low, CBS reports.
