Ship Flips, Leaks Oil

LONDON () -- A cargo ship has capsized in the Far East port of Vladivostok and is leaking fuel oil, Itar-Tass reported Sunday.


The agency said the 23 crew members of the Russian-owned Pallada escaped when the ship capsized Saturday after some of its timber cargo shifted.


Thirty-five tons of fuel oil on board the vessel was leaking into Zolotoi Rog Bay and floating timber was causing a hazard to shipping, the agency said.
