Storm in the Black Sea Causes Huge Oil Spill

Hosted by

Three dead sailors and dozens of birds slicked with oil have washed ashore after a fierce storm in the Black Sea forced at least ten ships aground. An oil tanker split in half, and has spilled more than 1000 gallons of oil in the Kerch Strait, which links the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov between Ukraine and Russia. Dario Thuburn is in Port Kavkaz on the Russian side for Agence France-Presse.
