Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 29
Azerbaijan is continuing works to extinguish the fire at the offshore platform #10 of the Gunashli platform in the Caspian Sea.
The fire broke out on the platform Dec. 4, as a strong storm damaged an underwater high-pressure gas pipeline. As many as 33 people were rescued in an ensuing large-scale operation.
Bodies of eight killed were retrieved, while 22 oil workers are still listed as missing.
