Sri Lanka Polluting The Indian Ocean
Our photographer captured this picture which shows a part of the ship that sank off Panadura washed ashore on Friday at Bambalapitiya. The same day the Disaster Management Ministry said that oil leaking from the sinking ship off Panadura had been detected some four to ten nautical miles off Galle Face (Colombo) and was spreading towards the sea off Negombo. Recent surveys have shown Sri Lanka to be the worst polluter of the Indian Ocean.
