Are you sure that's Somalia?
I would have thought it was India, where they run old ships aground, as fast as possible, so the ship breakers can get to them.

And how many die each year in those breaker yards??? Nobody knows...

Looks like either Alang or Chittagong. So many guys die there in cutting torch accidents- standing under plates being dropped or walking through an open hatch cover 'cus their arms are full, and the famous story of a guy who cut a nice circular cut in a hatch cover, and rode it the 40 feet down to the bottom of the hold because he was standing on the plate he was cutting.
