(ANSA) - Taranto, August 16 - A large oil leak has been
spotted in the sea off the southern Italian port city of
Taranto, probably released from a vessel flying a Turkish flag.
The diameter of the leak is some dozen meters, local sources
said.
The local port authorities together with a specialized
company called Ecotaras have started cleaning up the spill.
It's not yet clear if the leak results from the ship having
been damaged or if it is related to human error.
A similar incident took place in the area on April 11. Local
authorities are carrying out an examination of the oil in order
to determine its provenance.
The Turkish vessel was loading material from the ILVA steel
factory when the leak took place.
The leak has now been circumscribed with special materials.
