India chips in to fight tanker fire

- Colombo

– India yesterday sent fresh supplies of firefighti­ng chemicals to help battle a new blaze on a stricken tanker loaded with a massive cargo of crude oil off Sri Lanka’s eastern coast.

The New Diamond has been burning since Thursday and a huge blaze believed to have been extinguish­ed on Sunday reignited because of strong winds on Monday, raising fears of another environmen­tal disaster. – AFP
