Oil Spill in Indonesia

An oil spill in the Indonesian port city of Balikpapan killed four people and spread to an area of around 18 square kilometres. One person is missing.

Residents complained of a strong smell of fuel in the area and hundreds have reported health issues such as nausea and vomiting. The government distributed over 1,300 masks among people.

The disaster has affected sea life and fishermen held a protest at the mayor’s office, demanding compensation as their boats have been damaged and they cannot reach their fishing grounds.

People are investigating the source of the oil leak and the level of damage.
