Chemical Powder Dropped on Oil Tanker Fire in Sri Lanka

Helicopters dropped bags of a dry chemical powder, Monday, September 7, to help douse a fire on an oil tanker in the Indian Ocean.

India sent fresh supplies of firefighting chemicals, Tuesday, as the oil tanker continues to burn.

The New Diamond tanker has been burning since Thursday, raising fears of an environmental disaster in the Indian Ocean.
