Eco-disaster fears as ship burns
March 08 2018 09:29 PM

A container ship continued to burn off Agatti island in the Arabian Sea yesterday with officials revealing that its cargo was of a ‘dangerous’ class. The ship is laden with containers classified as “very hazardous to human beings”, capable of emitting poisons that can kill humans within a short time. The tragedy has occurred at the doorstep of the eco-sensitive Lakshadweep Islands. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard said the condition of three rescued sailors was critical as they may have inhaled toxic fumes after the fire erupted late on Tuesday.
