Cargo ship in trouble in Med after cargo shift

General cargo ship EVLOGIA suffered engine failure and went adrift in Mediterranean sea some 45 nm southeast of Karpathos at around 1800 UTC May 26, while en route from Damietta Egypt to Reni Ukraine. Later the ship encountered another problem caused by uncontrolled pitching and rolling – her cargo of salt shifted, so most probably, she developed list, maybe critical. Several nearby ships approached EVLOGIA with 11 crew on board, and are on standby. AIS is still on.
