French Chemical Spill

NPR's Sarah Chayes reports from France where officials are still trying to ascertain the severity of the spill from a cargo ship that sank in the English Channel last week. A noxious smell reported by sailors in the area has raised fears of a spill from the load of chemicals the tanker was carrying, but stormy conditions have kept officials from investigating fully.
