Indian oil spill ports to re-open

Two Indian ports which closed on Saturday following a collision between two vessels are due to re-open, according to India's Environment Minister.

The busy landings were forced to close following the incident between a cargo ship and a merchant navy vessel, which spilled 500 tonnes of oil into the Arabian Sea.

Thirty-two ships are currently waiting to enter or leave the ports.
