Greece tries to clean up Tanker oil spill from Beaches
Authorities in Greece say they are doing everything they can to clean up the oil that has coated parts of Athens’ coastline following the sinking of an oil tanker.The oil Tanker sank Sunday while anchored in calm seas off the coast of Salamina island, carrying 2,200 tons of fuel oil and 370 tons of marine gas oil.
Greece has also requested help from theEuropean Union and a specialised clean-up vessel has been deployed.
Many have accused the Greek government of not acting quickly enough to prevent the spill from spreading across the coastline. Mayors of affected coastal areas were threatening to take legal action over the pollution. Source: greekcitytimes.com
