Solomon Islands | UNESCO says oil from grounded freighter kept out of Rennell Island WH site

The Solomon Islands government said last week it had contained oil flowing from a ship grounded off Rennell Island, where it has put about 100 tonnes into the sea.

The ship is stuck in Kangava Bay, on the island's western side, close to a 37,000-hectare protected marine area in the east.
