Baku, May 4 (AZERTAC). A Swedish passenger ferry slammed into another ship as it was pulling into the north German port of Travemünde on Thursday evening.

There were 63 passengers and around 50 crew members onboard the combined passenger and freight ferry Nils Holgersson when it collided with the Urd around 6.15pm.

The TT-Lines ferry Nils Holdersson rammed into the side of the Urd, a ferry operated by Scandlines, ripping a hole in the Urd's hull.

No injuries were reported, however.
