Mr. Dang Trung Thanh, deputy director of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources of Binh Dinh province, told a local newspaper this morning that along with assisting people to deal with oil spills, the provincial authorities had mobilized tens of divers to search for the source of oil spills.
