The crew of a Moldovan cargo ship, eight of whom are Bulgarian, are trapped on board at a Spanish port.

Prosperity, a ship operated by a Greek company, is sailing under a Moldovan flag. It was not immediately known what led to its detention.

"People are scared, the ship has been detained... there is no water, there is no agent, as the previous agent didn't receive payment and the ship was left stranded," private bTV station quotes the head of a Varna-based company which had provided the Bulgarian sailors as saying.

The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry said on Friday afternoon it had already talked to the Bulgarian sailors several times and that it is currently looking into what caused the incident.
