"NZ Salvage Teams Resume Pumping Oil From Stricken Ship"

"Salvage crews have resumed pumping fuel from a stricken cargo ship listing badly on a reef off the northern coast of New Zealand."

"An earlier attempt to remove the remaining fuel from the leaking Rena was abandoned a week ago due to bad weather.

Forecasts predict further poor weather for Monday night.

More than 350 tonnes of heavy fuel oil have spilled into the water already, killing more than 1,000 sea birds."
