Mitsui OSK to spend $9.4 mln on Mauritius clean-up after oil spill

TOKYO, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Mitsui OSK Lines Ltd said on Friday it would spend about 1 billion yen ($9.42 million) to fund various measures for Mauritius, including the clean-up of the mangrove forest ecosystem and contribution to an environmental recovery fund.

A bulk carrier chartered by the Japanese shipping company ran aground on a reef in Mauritius in July, causing a marine ecological disaster around the Indian Ocean island.
