#AceWorldNews says an empty Spanish cargo ship split in half on a breakwater near Bayonne on the Atlantic coast, and France has raised a maritime pollution alert, the BBC reported.
Drifting after its engine failed, the Luno crashed into the breakwater at Anglet. All 12 crew members were winched to safety by helicopter.

The wreck leaked fuel oil, the report said.
