Black Sea Oil Tanker Sinks, Spills 1,000's Gallons Of Fuel

Another big shipping accident has left 560,000 of fuel leaking into the Black Sea. This follows last weeks spill in San Francisco, when a tanker collided with the Bay Bridge and spilled out its fuel. 2,000 tons of fuel oil had spilled from the tanker which broke apart in a huge storm in the Black Sea. A spill of more than 700 tons is considered large, but the biggest ones run into the tens or even hundreds of thousands.
