Coast guard moves
to prevent fuel leak

Philippine Coast Guard divers yesterday were  ensuring that fuel tanks and valves of the MV Asia Malaysia that sank four  nautical miles off  Ajuy town in Iloilo Sunday are sealed to prevent the leak of 21,000 liters of fuel on board, Commodore Athelo Ybañez, Western Visayas PCG commander, said.

PCG Bacolod head, Lt. Commander Godofredo Vagilidad,  said the ship sank about 50 to 60 feet down, and was about 3 kilometers from Manapla town in Negros Occidental.

We are making sure a leak is prevented   because it could cause environmental damage in the coastal waters of northern Iloilo and some parts of Negros Occidental, Ybañez said.moremoremore
