Grounded Japanese Ship Splits In Two

A Japanese bulk carrier that has spilled more than 1,000 tons of oil since running aground off the coast of Mauritius has broken in two.

Officials said the split was caused by a crack in a cargo hold, after the ship’s condition deteriorated severely overnight.

Emergency teams and thousands of volunteers have been racing to siphon off remaining fuel on board the ship. (📹: DW News)
