Spanish soldiers try to clean oil stained rocks along the coast of Lira
in the Spanish northwestern region of Galicia December 21, 2002.
Several hundred kilometers of coastline have been coated in oil sludge
which came from the stricken Prestige tanker which continues to leak
its cargo from the depths of the ocean floor. REUTERS/Miguel Vidal
