Coastal Belt cleaning process begins

Removal of oil on the coastal belt from Dehiwala to Mount Lavinia has begun. It is believed that the oil has collected on the coastal belt due to an oil leak from a ship. A black patch of oil can be seen in the sea on the coastal belt from Dehiwala to Mount Lavinia.

The Coast Protection Authority said that they have deployed ships belonging the Coast Guard to look into the situation. State Minister Ajith Mannapperuma who visited that area said that an investigation has been launched into the incident.
