BEIJING (Reuters) - A North Korean container ship listed and leaked a small amount of oil at China's Dalian port, Chinese state radio reported on Wednesday, giving few details.

The ship has been righted, and the spilled oil is being cleaned up, the radio report said. The port authorities have effectively contained the leak and expect the clean-up to finish on Thursday morning.

Dalian, northern China's biggest port, is operated by Dalian Port (PDA) Co Ltd. In July last year the port suffered a major explosion and oil spill, which killed one person and suspended crude oil shipments for nearly two weeks.
