A SEA-CRANE IS USED TO REFLOAT GROUNDED GREEK OIL TANKER NEAR KARACHI HARBOUR.
A sea-crane is used to refloat the grounded Greek oil tanker Tasman Spirit (R) near Karachi harbour February 25, 2004. The tanker, built in 1979, was carrying 67,500 tonnes of crude oil when it ran aground on July 27, 2003. It snapped in two in August, leaking around 29,000 tonnes of crude in the worst spill in Pakistan's history and polluting long stretches of beach around Karachi. REUTERS/Athar Hussain ZH/CP
