THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Dutch media on Tuesday reported that a tanker is leaking jet fuel into the North Sea 30 kilometers (20 miles) off the Dutch coast after colliding with a container ship.

News website Nu.nl reports that the Greek tanker has a 16-foot (five-meter) hole close to the water line from which kerosene is leaking.

Nu.nl cites a Coast Guard spokesman as saying the kerosene is evaporating quickly. National broadcaster NOS also reported Tuesday's collision, in which nobody was reported injured.
