Posted on August 24th, 2013 by Mike

A month ago, 10,000-15,000 tonnes of oil spilled into the Mediterranean Sea and Lebanon has now begun to clean the mess up.

“We are starting the clean-up operations as soon as tomorrow but the ceasefire has nothing to do with it … The blockade is still on so we cannot go into the sea yet. ” Environment Minister Yacoub Sarraf told Reuters.
