In this photo taken Thursday, March 15, 2012, The rusting hulk of an abandoned petroleum ship is beached on the coastline in Lagos, Nigeria, as the powerful waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash against the ships that lay beached along the coastline just outside of Nigeria's largest city. Government officials say they don't know how many abandoned ships choke Nigeria's waterways outside of Lagos with the resulting environmental and navigational hazards, as well as highlighting the lawlessness and corruption surrounding daily life in Nigeria.
