Specialized crew take part in an operation to clean the oil spill from the shores of Piraeus, a southeast suburb of Athens, capital of Greece, on Sept. 14, 2017. A major clean-up operation which was underway on Thursday to address an oil spill that has spread across a large area of the Saronic Gulf will last for about three weeks, Greek Shipping Minister Panagiotis Kouroumblis told a press briefing. The environmental crisis broke out on Sunday after the sinking of small tanker "Agia Zoni II" carrying about 2,500 tons of oil, which was anchored off Salamina Island under still unclear circumstances.
