SPANISH ARMY SOLDIERS CLEAN FUEL OIL WASHED ASHORE FROM THE SUNKEN
PRESTIGE OIL TANKER.
Spanish army soldiers clean fuel oil washed ashore from the sunken Prestige
oil tanker near Carnota on Spain's devastated North-West Atlantic coast on
January 9, 2003. Oil from the Prestige has blackened hundreds of miles of
pristine Spanish coastline, shutting down fishing and seafood industries and
forcing thousands of Spaniards to live off government handouts.
