Asbestos hazards

The end of the Blue Lady?

More on that French cruise liner, the Blue Lady. A high court in India finally gave permission for the ship to be dismantled. This ship has been roaming the seas looking for a resting place. The hazards posed by asbestos and other toxic materials have caused much concern. Bangladeshi authorities turned the ship away, and it finally pulled into the Alang yard in India a year ago. Environmentalists have been fighting efforts to break the ship down, but it looks like they have lost the legal battle.
