    Sri Lankan authorities say a burnt-out cargo ship carrying tons of chemicals just off of the port of Colombo has partly sunk. The MV Express Pearl had been on fire for nearly two weeks – with much of the dangerous cargo tumbling overboard. Workers extinguished the flames, but as the ship was being pulled out to sea, things went from bad to worse for what’s now labeled Sri Lanka’s worst marine disaster.
