A Bangladeshi worker carries waste from a scrapped ship at a
shipbreaking yard in Chittagong November 15, 2003. At least 297 people
have been killed and 600 injured in accidents at the Chittagong yard
over the past 12 years, say police and officials in Chittagong, which
handles 80 percent of the country's imports and exports. The yard and
the surrounding sea and shore are badly polluted and the workers - the
yard employs about 35,000 people - have little access to medical
treatment. Picture taken on November 15, 2003. TO ACCOMPANY FEATURE
