    Five days after being involved in a collision with two other vessels in the Bosphorus Straits off Istanbul, Turkey, the 16,300 tons Yugoslavian tanker 'Peter Zoranic' was still burning from end to end. Dec. 19, as our cameraman recorded this dramatic film.

    Now beached on the coast near Istanbul, the blazing tanker is causing great concern to fire- fighting organizations, for it is dangerously near fuel and oil installations on the shore.

    Fifty-one men were have presumed to have died Dec. 14 when the 'Peter Zoranic' collided with Greek Tanker 'World Harmony', and Turkish passenger vessel 'Tarsus' as she making her way to Hamburg with a cargo of Russian oil.
