Police searched the area; both stowaways were found dead near the bow and are thought be from either Cameroon or the Ivory Coast, reports Kiev's Maritime Bulletin, which specialises in marine casualties.
The ship was managed by Peter Dohle Schiffahrts-KG of Hamburg.
'Hopefully, the crew won't be blamed for these deaths, though it is highly likely that NGOs will do all they can, to blame the crew and shipping in general for the tragedy,' commented the Bulletin.
