A Papal white skull cap and burgundy shoes are displayed in the Gammarelli's tailor shop window in Rome, April 14, 2005. Cardinals start choosing a new Pope next week, but the successor to John Paul will be all sewn up well before the secret conclave opens. Because the tailor Filippo Gammarelli has no clue as to who the new pope will be, the firm has made three versions of the same silk and wool outfit, in small, medium and large, to clothe the most lean or corpulent cardinal.

Millions have also been forced to head south to India in search of work, where they toil as labourers or household servants. Picture taken on February 12, 2006. REUTERS/Desmond Boylan
