Zevulun, Kiryat Haim beaches reopened to public after oil spill

Two northern beaches - Zevulun and Kiryat Haim - can now be visited by the public after an oil spill caused by Thursday evening's collision between two ships in the Haifa bay has been cleaned, the Health Ministry announced on Saturday. Entry to the Sharon beach is still forbidden to bathers due to a sewage leak into the water.
