According to a state-run media report... officials in Shanghai are monitoring a chemical leak from a cargo ship on the Yangtze River. Officials say the chemical is called phenol, which is an acid used in detergents. This is the second water pollution scare in a month.

About three weeks ago, Cadmium pollution was detected in the Liujiang River in the Guangxi region. Cadmium is a chemical that can cause cancer and damage people's kidneys. It was found more than 10 days after the wastewater from a local mining firm polluted Longjiang, a tributary upstream of the Liujiang River.
