Oil slick drifting
Sunday 24 January 1993
SINGAPORE (Reuter) - Fire and smoke poured from a ruptured supertanker north of the Indonesian island of Sumatra, but a growing oil slick from the vessel was drifting away from land, the tanker's owners said yesterday.
Efforts to contain the flames and the slick appeared to be achieving some success. Four tugs and fire-fighting ships surrounded the Maersk Navigator, which collided with an empty tanker near the entrance to the Strait of Malacca on Thursday.
