Operation Dismantle
Workers take apart the cargo ship "Yunhai," which was stranded north of Penghu on Tuesday, June 28. The 8,000-ton vessel ran aground in the waters surrounding Penghu over four months ago.

The dismantling work was 30-percent done Tuesday and may be completed as early as August, authorities said.
