TOPSHOTS A shovel sits in oil-covered sa

A shovel sits in oil-covered sand at Ao Phrao beach as volunteers work to clean up the area after a major oil slick hit the island of Ko Samet on July 31, 2013. Environmentalists accused a Thai energy firm on July 30 of understating the extent of the major pipeline leak as the navy warned the oil slick might reach the mainland. Tourists were leaving the resort island of Ko Samet in the Gulf of Thailand as workers in protective suits used hoses, buckets and shovels to clean up blackened sand and oil which washed ashore on a once-idyllic beach.
