AP PHOTOS: ‘Plastic Man’ in Senegal on mission against trash


              The environmental activist Modou Fall, who many simply call "Plastic Man", poses for a photo at the Yarakh Beach littered by trash and plastics in Dakar, Senegal, Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. As he walks, plastics dangle from his arms and legs, rustling in the wind while strands drag on the ground. On his chest, poking out from the plastics, is a sign in French that says, "No to plastic bags." (AP Photo/Leo Correa)
