This photo taken on April 4 by the government of Queensland, Australia, shows a small amount of oil leaking from the Chinese coal carrier the Shen Neng 1 after the vessel ran aground near Australia's Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland late on April 3. The carrier was refloated on April 12 and officials were dispatched to assess damage to the Douglas Shoal on the reef.
