Brazil minister says oil on country's beaches 'very likely from Venezuela'

BRASILIA, Oct 9 (Reuters) - Oil mysteriously washing up on beaches in Brazil is “very likely from Venezuela,” Brazilian Environment Minister Ricardo Salles said on Wednesday, citing a report by state-owned oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA .

Salles told a Congressional hearing that “all indications” are that a foreign ship navigating near the coast caused the spill “accidentally or not” that is “enormously difficult to contain.” (Reporting by Jake Spring Editing by Chris Reese)
