New China toxic spills threaten millions – AFP

From AFP, via The Daily Star:

Two major new toxic spills in China have threatened water supplies for millions of residents, officials and state media said yesterday, as local governments took emergency measures.

In the eastern province of Shandong a 60 kilometer-long (37 mile) diesel oil slick flowing down the Yellow River, China's second longest river, forced the province to stop pumping water from it, the Xinhua news agency said.
