A Catholic woman kneels as she prays in a small chapel in the village of Bai Gu Tun, located on the outkirts of the city of Tianjin, around 70 km (43 miles) south-east of Beijing July 17, 2012. Chinese Catholics number between 8-12 million, and are divided between a state-sanctioned church that has installed bishops without Vatican approval and an "underground" wing long wary of associating with the Communist Party-run church. China and the Vatican broke off formal diplomatic relations shortly after the Chinese Communists took power in 1949. Pope Benedict has, however, encouraged the two sides of the divided Chinese church to reconcile. However just last week, according to a Catholic online news service, a priest who quit China's state-sanctioned Catholic Church and was ordained auxiliary bishop of Shanghai with the approval of the pope, was taken away by officials after the ceremony and has not been heard from since.

An opposition activist attacks riot police during a rally to protest against a Russian language bill passed by parliament in Kiev July 4, 2012. Hundreds of protesters clashed with riot police in central Kiev and Ukraine's parliament speaker offered to resign on Wednesday amid uproar after a move to boost the status of the Russian language in the former Soviet republic. Riot police fired tear gas and used batons to push back protesters, who had massed in front of a building where President Viktor Yanukovich was due to hold a news briefing. The bill would upgrade the status of Russian in the former Soviet republic. REUTERS/Anatolii Stepanov (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)
