Article Photos: India's top court refuses entry to Exxon Valdez 1/1

  FILE - In this June 23, 1989 file photo, the Exxon Valdez is towed out of Prince William Sound in Alaska by a tug boat and a U.S. Coast Guard Cutter. India's Supreme Court on May 3, 2012 banned the Exxon Valdez from entering India, saying the ship involved in one of the worst U.S. oil spills will not be allowed in for dismantling until it has been decontaminated. The ship, now known as the "Oriental Nicety," entered Indian waters last week and was headed for the western Indian state of Gujarat for dismantling, when the Supreme Court gave its order, environmental activist Gopal Krishna said Wednesday.
