 No damage has been caused to the bulk carrier ‘MV Eurosun’ which was sailing under Liberian flag with a shipment of over 33,000 MT cargo and ran aground at Little Basses, the Navy said. 

 The ship was en route to Trincomalee from the Abu Dhabi Port in the UAE, ran aground at Little Basses which is about 5.5 nautical miles (10km) off the south-eastern coast of the island. 

 
 On receipt of a distress call to the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC in Colombo), a Sri Lanka Navy rescue ship and craft were rushed to the scene from the ports of Hambantota and Galle on Saturday afternoon.   
 The Sri Lanka Naval ship and craft carrying Navy divers have reached MV Eurosun and conducted the preliminary investigation.
