  • U.N. Launches Operation to Remove Oil from Decaying Tanker Off Yemen’s Coast
In Yemen, the United Nations has begun an operation to salvage over 1 million barrels of oil from a decaying tanker anchored in the Red Sea. It comes after years of delay and mounting warnings of a potentially catastrophic oil spill off the Yemeni coastline after maintenance on the Safer tanker was suspended in 2015 due to the U.S.-backed, Saudi-led war in Yemen.
