Cleaning up massive Red Sea oil spill before it happens

The World

An oil storage tanker off the Yemeni coast is in danger of a hull breach that would release a million barrels of oil, coating the Red Sea coasts of Yemen, Saudi Arabia and the Horn of Africa and leading to an ecological and humanitarian crisis. Having won the cooperation of Yemen's Houthi authorities, the UN is mounting a salvage operation. But it's a race against time, and the UN needs money to complete the job. Host Marco Werman speaks with UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen David Gressly, who is in charge of the salvage operation.
