Large globs of tar have washed up on much of Israel's Mediterranean coastline

Large globs of tar have washed up on much of Israel's Mediterranean coastline in what officials are calling one of the worst environmental disasters to hit the country.



Thousands of volunteers and soldiers are helping to clear the pollutant which is damaging wildlife.

Israel is trying to track the source of the pollution, which is thought to have come from a ship spilling oil.

The general population has been told to avoid the beaches.

Dozens of tonnes of tar have been found on many stretches of Israel's 190km (120 miles) Mediterranean coastline and there are fears it will take months, or even years to clean up.

NGOs have reported turtles and birds covered in oil... BBC
