Brazil oil platform evacuated as precaution
Rio de Janeiro's port captain says about 100 workers have been evacuated from a tilting oil platform in that city's bay.
The port captain's office says in a Sunday statement that an inclination of three degrees prompted the Saturday night evacuation. It says no petroleum has leaked from the platform owned by the U.S. firm Transocean, and no one has been hurt and navigation is not affected.
