Tanker and carrier collide off Singapore
SINGAPORE/KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - An oil tanker and a bulk carrier collided in waters between Malaysia and Singapore on Tuesday morning, spilling an estimated 2,000 metric tons of oil, but traffic in Asia's busiest shipping lane remained unaffected.
The Malaysian flagged MT Bunga Kelana was carrying about 62,000 metric tons of light crude oil, the country's coast guard said.
Singapore port authorities said they had activated oil-spill response companies and a clean-up operation was being put in place. There were no reports of injuries among the 50 crew members.
