Nicosia, Sep 28 (CNA) -- A yacht under the Italian flag sank one mile off Episkopi Gulf, near the southern coastal town of Limassol, Tuesday night.

A Police spokesman has told CNA that people aboard the vessel sent an SOS and a Cyprus coastal police patrol boat went to the area and rescued five Italians, who were on a life-saving raft and took them to the headquarters of the coastal police.

They have not suffered any injuries.

The yacht had sailed off Marmaras, Turkey, for Lebanon.
