In Greece, authorities are struggling to contain a mounting ecological disaster, after a tanker carrying 2,500 tons of fuel sank off an island near Athens. By Friday, thick tar and a heavy oil sheen covered beaches near the Greek capital, fouling the waters and killing wildlife. Authorities initially claimed they had sealed off a breach in the sunken ship, but later admitted the vessel was still leaking oil.
