Helge Ingstad: Norway's warship collides with tanker in fjord

Norway has evacuated all 137 crew from one of its warships after it collided in a fjord with a Maltese oil tanker.

Eight people were lightly injured in the collision in the Hjeltefjord near Bergen. The KNM Helge Ingstad frigate has been listing dangerously.

The warship had been returning from Nato military exercises. The tanker, the Sola TS, was slightly damaged and it appears that it did not spill oil.

"Due to the damage to the frigate it was moved to a safe place," Nato's Allied Maritime Command said in a statement.
