A man cycles past the Pakarab (Pakistan-Arab) fertilizer factory in Multan December 15, 2011. U.S. lawmakers are ready to freeze up to $700 million in aid to Pakistan until Congress gets assurances that Islamabad is helping fight the spread of homemade bombs in the region, a move one Pakistani senator called unwise and likely to strain ties further. U.S. lawmakers said many Afghan bombs are made with fertiliser smuggled by militants across the border from Pakistan into Afghanistan. A U.S. Congressional Research Service report in October said the Pakistani factories, owned by one of the country's biggest companies, Pakarab, have been producing over 300,000 metric tonnes of ammonium nitrate per year since 2004.

Flamingos fly over a wetland reserve in Celestun in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula December 6, 2011. With the world's population of wild flamingos under threat from overdevelopment and illegal trade on the black market, the wetland reserve is thriving with thousands of the pink feathered creatures in search of an ideal winter habitat. According to the Caribbean Flamingo Conservation Program, the estimated 45,000 flamingos that call Mexico's Yucatan state home are an integral part of the travelling bird's regional metapopulation that stretches as far as the Caribbean islands.
