STORYLINE:

South Korea's Coast Guard mobilised thousands of people on Sunday to clean up a disastrous oil spill polluting a swathe of the country's scenic and environmentally rich western coast.

About 100 ships, including Coast Guard, navy and private fishing boats, were to help contain and clean up the spill, South Korea's worst ever, said Coast Guard Official Lee Young-ho.

Lee said about 5-thousand people, including government personnel, local residents and volunteers, were expected to participate.

"Right now we have about 3,500 people, including the coast guards and volunteers, coming out and helping to clean the water. We'll have about 5-thousand people continuously helping in this," Lee said.

The oil started hitting beaches, including Mallipo, on Saturday after a Hong Kong-registered supertanker was slammed the day before by a South Korean-owned barge that came unmoored from its tugboat in rough seas.

A total of 66-thousand barrels (10.5 (m) million liters (2.7 (m) million gallons) of crude gushed into the ocean, more than twice as much as in South Korea's worst previous spill in 1995.

Thick, smelly waves of crude washed ashore, turning seagulls black and threatening fish farms along a 17-kilometre (11-mile) stretch of coast, despite efforts to block it, including dropping oil fences into the ocean and the use of chemicals to break it up.

The Coast Guard said the last of three leaks in the tanker had been plugged Sunday.

Mallipo is one of South Korea's best-known beaches, an important stopover for migrating birds, including snipe, mallards and great crested grebes, and has an abundant fishing industry.

Oh Ok-bong, a 72-year-old resident, came to the beach on Sunday to help, but despaired for the area where he has lived for 30 years.

"I don't know what to say. We're heavily depending our lives on this sea, but it has been contaminated� there isn't any plan for us," he said.

The central government has designated the oil spill a "disaster," which makes it easier for regional governments to mobilize personnel, equipment and material to cope with the situation. But it stopped short of declaring the region a "disaster area," which would make residents eligible for government financial aid, despite pleas to do so.

The accident occurred about 11 kilometers (7 miles) off Mallipo.

The area also includes a national maritime park.

The Coast Guard said it was unclear how many days the operation would take.

The accident occurred on Friday morning when a crane-carrying barge en route from a construction site lost control after a wire linking it to the tugboat was cut due to high winds, waves and currents.

The vessel then slammed into the Hebei Spirit tanker. Neither ship was in danger of sinking and there were no casualties.

The tanker had been at anchor and carrying about 260-thousand tons - about 1.8 (m) million barrels - of crude oil to be loaded into boats from a nearby port.

The size of the leak reported by the authorities would be about one-fourth that of the 260-thousand barrels, or 11(m) million gallons, spilled into Alaska's Prince William Sound by the Exxon Valdez in 1989.

The spill was also smaller than one in Pakistan in 2003 when a Greek-registered ship ran aground near Karachi, leaking some 195,940 barrels (8.2 (m) million gallons) of crude that polluted the city's main beaches.

STORYLINE

Patches of oil were washing up on the shores of Russia's Strait of Kerch on Monday, after a Russian tanker broke up at sea during a fierce storm.

The stricken oil tanker, the Volganeft-139, was carrying nearly 4,800 metric tons (1.3 (m) million gallons) of fuel oil, when it sank, and around half that amount has leaked into the strait.

Oil-covered seabirds were struggling along the shore, and workers were busy with shovels and forks cleaning up the oil.

Officials are concerned that damage from the oil tanker spill could be the worst environmental disaster in the region in years, and could take years to clean up.

The Volganeft-139's 13 crew members were rescued, authorities said.

The Russian tanker was one of several ships that sank or ran aground in the Strait of Kerch and the northern Black Sea region during the storm.

Also on Monday, rescuers recovered the bodies of three sailors from another Russian freighter that sank, the Nakhichevan.

The Nakhichevan was one of two freighters that broke up as 18-foot (5.5-metre) waves battered ships throughout the region surrounding the Strait of Kerch, a narrow strait linking the Black Sea and the smaller Sea of Azov.

The dead sailors, wearing life vests, washed up near Tuzla on the western side of the strait, Emergency Situations spokesman Sergei Kozhemyaka said, and rescuers were looking for five others.

STORYLINE

An operation continued on Friday morning to recover the remaining dead from a cruise boat which capsized on Thursday night off the coast of Bahrain, killing at least 57 people, officials said.

Television footage showed the boat, al-Dana, capsized and lying on its side, with rescue workers walking on its brown hull.

Bahrain's Interior Ministry spokesman told Al-Jazeera television that 67 people had been rescued.

He said that not all the identities of the 57 dead were known as many of them did not carry identification papers.

He said the exact number of passengers was also not known because some left the boat before it sailed.

He said an investigation was underway to find out the cause of the accident.

The boat was thought to have been carrying up to 150 people when it capsized.

The official Bahrain News Agency said the boat was on an evening cruise that was to last several hours. It overturned less than a mile off the coast, it added.

US helicopters and divers joined the rescue and recovery operation launched by Bahrain's Coast Guard.
