Turkey closes Dardanelles strait on Marmara-Aegean seas over fog,

Turkey's Dardanelles strait, which connects the Sea of Marmara with the Aegean, was closed on Saturday due to heavy fog and poor visibility, a shipping agency said.

"Dardanelles vessel traffic has been suspended for northbound passages on Oct. 24 because of heavy fog and poor visibility," GAC Turkey said in a statement.

Turkey's Bosphorus and Dardanelles straits provide the only navigable waterways for oil-exporting Black Sea ports such as Poti, Supsa and Novorossiisk.
