Oil slick from stricken supertanker spotted off Sri Lanka

Tue 8th September, 2020 3:40pm
COLOMBO, Sept 8 (Reuters) - An oil slick has been spotted 1
km (half a mile) from a stricken supertanker loaded with crude
oil off the east coast of Sri Lanka, the Sri Lankan navy said on
Tuesday.
    "The ship has tilted slightly towards where the fire broke
out due to the large amount of water sprayed to douse the fire.
Because of this, oil in the engine room appears to have leaked
out to the sea," a statement said. 
    The navy had earlier said it had "better control" over a new
fire on the tanker.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2G51DM
    Fire first broke out last Thursday in the engine room of the
New Diamond and spread to the bridge. It appeared to have been
out out, but fire erupted again on Monday.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL4N2G01O2
