Unfortunate New Year firework

An Italian coast guard unit patrols the area, where a tug boat sprays water on the Bahamas-flagged oil tanker "Panama Serena" ablaze in the Sardinian port-town of Porto Torres. The ship caught fire while it was unloading its cargo of benzene. Two crew members, a Ukrainian and a Latvian, are reported missing.
