    Negombo, May 27 (EFE/EPA).- Sri Lanka Navy personnel on Thursday cleared the beach areas from debris of the damaged containers from the burning cargo vessel MV X-Press Pearl, which exploded off the coast in the northwest of Colombo.The Sri Lanka Navy said the explosion was caused by chemicals being transported on the ship carrying over 1,000 containers, including 25 tonnes of nitric acid and other chemicals from the port of Hazira, India.The 25-member crew including Philippine, Chinese, Indian and Russian nationals were evacuated by the Navy on Tuesday, while two injured members were hospitalized and one was tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday. Chairperson of Sri Lanka’s Maritime Environmental Protection Authority (MEPA) Dharshani Lahandapura warned the public not to touch any items that would be washed ashore between Colombo and Negombo, as they could be toxic and harmful. The warning, however, went unheeded with residents along the beach area salvaging whatever they found washed ashore.The Sri Lanka Navy then took the initiative to prevent this as they began the clearing up operations on the beaches.
