WELLINGTON - Salvage experts reboarded a stricken container ship wedged on a reef on Thursday as the vessel threatened to break in half and residents joined specialist crews in clearing beaches of large clumps of toxic fuel oil.

A second ship's officer appeared in court in connection with the running aground of the Liberian-flagged Rena 12 nautical miles off Tauranga on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island.

Officials say that eight days after the accident, large splits have opened up down the middle of its hull of the vessel, which has lost up to 300 tons of heavy, thick, toxic fuel.
