A Shell to Sea spokesman said 50 people were involved in the demonstration today on Glengad Beach. 

He said one of those arrested is the son of Maura Harrington, who is on the fifth day of a hunger strike.

A Garda spokesman said three men and a woman were arrested this afternoon for public order offences. 

All four are being held at Belmullet Garda station. 

Ms Harrington (54) has said she will continue her hunger strike until the boat brought in by Shell to lay the Corrib offshore gas pipeline leaves Irish waters.  read more

Fuel Trucks Pick Up Last Loads

Susan Daker reports from Houston.

Fuel tank drivers picked up their last loads Friday afternoon and made their way to Shell-branded gasoline stations in the Houston area as Hurricane Ike neared the Texas coast.

Many service stations around the city already have plastic covering their pumps. In the past 36 hours, more than six million gallons of gasoline has been delivered to Shell stations, Royal Dutch Shell said in a statement. Gasoline terminals in Beaumont, Pasadena and north Houston have been shut-in but have enough gasoline to supply stations once the weather clears, Shell said. Some wholesalers have preloaded tankers with fuel so they are ready to make deliveries as soon as possible, Shell said. In addition, Shell said generators are on hand to be sent to strategic stations so gasoline can still be sold even if the power is out. read more
