Divers Plug Holes In Tanker

January 28, 2000

Divers have plugged most of the leaks in a tanker carrying heavy fuel, which sank off the United Arab Emirates, the UAE coastguard said. Hassan Malallah said a little oil was still leaking from the Honduras-flagged Al Jazya 1 from holes which divers were trying to plug. Operations to pump the oil from the UAE-owned vessel, which sank last Monday, were hampered because it had no suitable connection to pipe the oil directly to nearby ships, he said. Officials have said about 300 tons of oil has leaked from the 260-ft. ship which sank in shallow water in a shipping lane a few miles off Abu Dhabi.
