India coast guard cleaning oil spill off Mumbai (AP) – 149th Edition

Indian coast guard officials walk on the Juhu beach contaminated by oil leaking from a merchant ship that sank off the Arabian Sea coast four days ago in Mumbai, India, Monday, Aug. 8, 2011. Two Indian coast guard ships were using chemicals to clean up the oil spread over an area of 7 nautical miles, Navy spokesman Capt. Manohar Nambiar said. The 740-foot (225-meter) vessel, which had been transporting coal from Indonesia to the western Indian state of Gujarat, was estimated to be carrying about 325 tons of fuel oil and 56 tons of diesel, the coast guard said. The navy rescued 30 crew members from Indonesia, Jordan and Romania after receiving a distress signal from the ship before it sank on Thursday.
