Turning to another oil spill, this time in India. Scores of sea-birds and fish have died from an oil spill off the country's west coast.
A cargo ship spilt oil into the sea following a collision off Mumbai last week. Hundreds of fish and bird species have died after being fatally stranded amid the polluted waters. Many more are suffering injuries and infections. Local fishermen fear the oil spill could not only harm marine life, but their livelihoods.
Abdul Aziz, local fisherman, said, "I catch fish for a living, but due to the oil spill I have been unable to continue my trade, resulting in huge losses. The fish have died, and even the ones which are living could be infected due to the toxic waters. The government has warned that there could be more barrels in the sea, which could escalate damage to marine life."
