In pictures: Lebanon oil spill clean-up

Up to 15,000 metric tonnes of heavy fuel oil spilled into the Mediterranean when Lebanon's Jiyyeh power plant was bombed in mid-July by the Israeli military.

The oil slick drifted north for 150km. The clean-up operation only began a month after the bombing, when the conflict ended.

This picture from October 17 shows oily water at the small port of Dalieh, in West Beirut.
