SOLDIERS FORM A LINE TO CLEAN UP FUEL OIL SPILLED FROM THE "PRESTIGE" OIL
TANKER NEAR THE COASTAL TOWN OF MUXIA.

A group of soldiers form a line to clean up fuel oil spilled from the
"Prestige" oil tanker near the coastal town of Muxia on Spain's devastated
North West Atlantic coast on January 27, 2003. The aging, single-hulled
tanker foundered off the coast of Galicia in November 2002 with 77,000
tonnes of heavy fuel oil on board, causing Spain's worst ever ecological
disaster, contaminating hundreds of miles of coast and putting thousands of
fishermen out of work. Pictures of the Year 2003 REUTERS/Miguel Vidal
