OIL SLICK FROM STRICKEN TANKER REACHES NORTHWESTERN COAST OF SPAIN.
An oil slick from the stricken Bahamas registered tanker Prestige,
loaded with 70,000 tonnes of fuel oil, reaches Cabo Villano in the
northwestern coast of Spain November 16, 2002. Tugs have towed the
26-year-old Prestige, damaged during a violent storm on Wednesday, more
than 65 miles from the unspoiled stretch of Galician shore. A salvage
team battles to prevent the ship breaking in two amid high seas.
