(Newser) – China is struggling to contain an oil spill of its own, and Greenpeace has released dramatic photos of the operation. The trouble started Friday when a pipeline exploded in the port city of Dalian, sending crude into the Yellow River, reports the Christian Science Monitor. The spill currently covers 165 square miles of water, a figure that doubled since yesterday bur remains a fraction of the BP spill's 2,700 square miles.
