CAIRO (AP) — An international charity on Wednesday urged global donors to pay up on pledges to remove oil from a long-stranded and rusting supertanker off Yemen to avert an explosion or leak that could wreak environmental and economic disaster.

The call by Save the Children has come as the Netherlands, U.S. and Germany are scheduled Wednesday to announce “the successful funding of the emergency operation” to neutralize the threat from the FSO Safer oil tanker. The event, which also includes the U.N. and Yemen’s internationally recognized government, takes place on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

Noah Gragson opened the NASCAR Xfinity playoffs by winning his fourth race in a row at Texas Motor Speedway. The victory for Gragson locked up the first spot in the round of eight. There are two more races to determine the other seven drivers that will advance with him. The Xfinity Series begins its playoffs with 12 drivers, instead of 16 like the Cup Series, so its postseason is one round shorter. The only other driver to win four consecutive races in the series was Sam Ard in 1983, the second year of the NASCAR’s second-level circuit.
