Tanker with fuel oil sank off the coast of Greece
Tanker with 2.2 thousand tonnes of fuel oil and 370 tonnes of marine gas oil was sunk in the Saronic Gulf near Piraeus port.
As reports “RIA Novosti”, local authorities are trying to stop the sea pollution with oil products.
The tanker “Agia Zoni II” sank near the island Atalanti between Piraeus and the island of Salamis, where he was anchored after sailing from the oil refineries of “Aspropyrgos”.
It is noted that the patrol boat rescued two of the 11 crew members.
The captain and chief engineer were taken to the Central port of Piraeus, where he was arrested, but subsequently, by order of the Prosecutor they were released. There is an investigation of causes and circumstances of the incident.
We will remind, in August the Iraqi ship al “-Misbar” sank in the channel of Khor Abdullah in a collision with a foreign vessel, Royal Arsenal. At least 20 Iraqi sailors died.
