SOLDIERS AND VOLUNTEERS CLEAN UP STAINED ROCKS IN THE SPANISH COASTAL
VILLAGE OF MUXIA.
A group of soldiers and volunteers clean up fuel oil spilled from the
"Prestige" oil tanker on stained rocks near the coastal town of Muxia
on Spain's devastated North West Atlantic coast on January 30, 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. REUTERS/Miguel
