Oil Leak At US Air Base In S. Korea Sends Officials Scramble

May 26, 2011

A small quantity of diesel oil leaked out of a U.S. air base in South Korea sent local officials scramble to stop it amid growing concerns over possible environmental contamination at U.S. military bases in the East Asian country.

The oil leak at the U.S. military base in the port city of Gunsan, 274 kilometers south-west of capital Seoul, was first detected by a local resident three days ago and was found to have spilled from a storage tank inside the base, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported on Thursday.
