The Samet Island oil spill has spread to nearby islands in Thailand, officials said Wednesday. Officials race to cleanup the oil washed up on Samet Island, a popular tourist destination in Thailand, after 13,200 gallons of oil was spilled into the sea from a pipeline.

The Samet Island oil spill came from a leak in the pipeline operated by a subsidiary of state-owned oil and gas company PTT Plc.
