The amazing thing is that this is entirely legal.

Seems like they ought to amend that 1936 Montreaux convention to restrict dangerous materials???

What people don't realise is:
The Bosphorus in no wider than many rivers, and very twisty (look at the map! Bosphorus - Google image)
The currents can be quite tricky - they change during the day
The boat traffic is heavy .... both ways, and with very large ships, mainly cargo, as well as ferries that serve as a bus service to villages all the way up the Bosphorus ...

The risks to the large population along its shores if a serious incident occured with dangerous cargo .. terrifying idea ..............

Thanks for posting, Cal

Theodore Shayne took the words right out of my mouth. And this is in an area that is so volatile.
