  1. Pipeline Breach Floods Israeli Nature Reserve

    Israel has suffered its worst-ever oil spill, with a pipeline leak flooding the Evrona nature reserve. Scores of people have reportedly been taken to the hospital for breathing trouble. The leak occurred in a new section of pipeline near Eilat. The leak has stopped, and rescue and maintenance crews are on the scene. A lack of rain has helped stem the tide, but officials fear it will still require months — if not years — of cleanup.
