DHAKA, Dec. 13, 2014 - Photo taken on Dec. 9, 2014 shows the sinking site on the Shela River in Bangladesh. A 50-km oil slick coated the Shela River flowing through the Bangladeshi part of the world's largest mangrove forest on Thursday after a fuel-laden barge sank two days ago following collision with a heavy tanker. Officials said the authorities have already been working to remove the layer of oil that seeped in the world's largest mangrove forest -- Sundarbans.
