"A cargo ship called Atlantis carrying a Liberian flag drifted as a result of sea disturbance and high waves while trying to enter the port of Tripoli," the navy's information office said in a statement.

The ship hit rocks and water leaked into the engines, the statement said.

All 14 crew members rescued are Indian nationals, it added.
