UN: Warning Of Potential Ecological Disaster If Nothing’s Done To Stop Decaying Oil Tanker Off Yemen
Last updated on
There’s a warning of a potential ecological disaster if nothing’s done to stop a decaying oil tanker from falling apart off the coast of Yemen.
The ‘FS0 Safer’ was abandoned in the Red Sea at the outbreak of the country’s civil war.
Now the United Nations is planning a mission to stop more than a million barrels of oil from spilling into the water.
UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen David Gressly says it’s not “if” – but “when” :
“It’s important that we act as quickly as we can, or it will eventually spill 1 million barrels of oil into the Red Sea. We really have no way out, except to solve the problem”.
