A garbage-collecting boat in seen at the Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 1, 2015. he International Olympic Comittee (IOC) is still concerned about the water pollution in Rio de Janeiro barely one year before it hosts the 2016 Olympic Games, its president Thomas Bach said in June. Rio de Janeiro had originally pledged to reduce pollution in the notoriously fetid Guanabara Bay by 80 percent but officials confirmed in March that the target will not be reached. Instead, they are now concentrating only on parts of the bay where sailing competitions will take place although they have insisted that these areas will be safe. The garbage-collecting boat resumed cleaning on Wednesday after stopping four months ago, 45 days before a sailing event test for the Olympics. REUTERS/Sergio Moraes less
