The Wider Image: Aboard a stranded casino ship
Ukrainian captain Valerie Lyzhyn talks on a walkie-talkie behind a closed swimming pool on board the New Imperial Star casino cruiser at Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, China April 15, 2016. Captain Lyzhyn and his 45 crew are stranded in Hong Kong, big losers in a gambling slump triggered by a Chinese crackdown on corruption that has scared off the high-rollers. The crew refuse to leave their 140 metre (460 ft.) casino cruiser the New Imperial Star until they get the six months of pay they say they are owed. Hong Kong's Marine Department has impounded the ship due to what it called "serious deficiencies" found during an inspection. Rations are running low, the ship's owners can't be reached and the cobalt blue felt covering the 16 baccarat tables is gathering dust. REUTERS/Bobby Yip SEARCH "YIP CASINO" FOR THIS STORY.
