Omar, from Guinea, shows the wire he has recovered while hunting for scrap metal in Barcelona, Spain on October 24, 2007. 'Chatarra', as the collecting of scrap metal is called in Spanish, is one of the safest ways for illegal immigrants to make money since they don't need a work permit to do it. Because they are only recycling found materials, they are not breaking any laws and the police don't pursue them.
