Two ships have collided off the coast of Germany and several people are missing

BERLIN (AP) — German authorities say two cargo ships have collided in the North Sea off the German coast and several people are missing. Germany’s Central Command for Maritime Emergencies said the ships, Polesie and Verity, collided early Tuesday morning about 22 kilometers (14 miles) southwest of the island of Helgoland. One of the ships, the British-flagged Verity, apparently sank. The emergency command said one person was rescued from the water and was being given medical treatment, and rescuers were searching for several more people who were missing.
