at Least 60 000 litres of oil has leaked into guanabara bay outside Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The leak happened after someone tried to steal oil from a pipeline owned by the state Petroleo Brasileiro.
the Oil has spread into the river that empties into the bay, where the mangrove grows, and half of the oil should already be busy, according to an announcement from the company.
– It was a major leak and it affected mangroven, " says Mauricio Muniz, the brazilian environmental agency.
In recent years, criminal gangs, on several occasions, stole large amounts of oil and oil products from the company to resell on the black market.TT
