Images of the Madagascan oil tanker 'Tanio' that has struck rocks thirty seven miles from the coast of Brittany, during a voyage from Wilhelmshaven, Germany to Civitecchia, Italy. The tanker will go on to spill 13, 500 tons of cargo oil into the English Channel, as the vessel splits in two. The disaster resulted in the deaths of eight crewmen, but thirty one crewmen were rescued by helicopters from France. For more images of the Tanio sinking, see L/A/75/A3/5/3310B. Jersey Evening Post
