Luz Elena Munoz holds a photograph of her daughter Nancy Ivette Navarro Munoz while sitting next to the dress of Nancy's 15th birthday celebration, in Ciudad Juarez June 3, 2014. Nancy was 18-years-old when she disappeared in July 2011 while looking for work in downtown Ciudad Juarez. Luz Elena still hopes that her daughter will come back some day. Mexico's drug war has claimed so many lives over the past several years that most of the corpses are never identified, or worse still, misidentified in a morbid comedy of errors by the country's overwhelmed forensic teams.

NPC Standing Committee set the stage for a political showdown on Sunday when it rejected democrats' demands for the right to freely choose Hong Kong's next leader in 2017, leading scores of protesters to take to the streets. Scuffles broke out on Monday during a tense stand-off at the entrance to where Li was explaining Beijing's decision, prompting police to use pepper spray amid chaotic scenes inside and outside the venue.

Pro-democracy activists vowed on Sunday to bring Hong Kong's financial hub to a standstill after China's parliament rejected their demands for the right to freely choose the former British colony's next leader in 2017. The banner reads "Protest against the lost of credit on central government. It's shameful on the deprivation of democracy." The signs read, "shameful". REUTERS/Bobby Yip

Afram Yakoub, chairman of the Assyrian Federation of Sweden poses for a photograph in his office in the town of Sodertalje, south west of Stockholm June 4, 2014. Sweden has for decades prided itself on offering a refuge for those fleeing oppression in other parts of the world. While the vast majority of Swedes continue to support traditional, open-door immigration policies, a populist, anti-immigrant party, the Sweden Democrats, has struck a chord with voters by tying worries that welfare services are declining and schools are slipping behind international peers with the cost of accepting asylum seekers. Around 16 percent of Swedes were born abroad and the country has maintained an open-door policy to refugees for decades, but Sweden has struggled to integrate many of the new arrivals and unemployment among immigrant groups is much higher than the national average leaving many, particularly young people, feeling marginalised.

The Irish Tricolour flies from a gravestone in Milltown cemetery, West Belfast
The Irish Tricolour flies from a gravestone in Milltown cemetery, West Belfast August 18, 2014. The tricolour is the national flag of Ireland and is flown by Nationalists and Republicans in Northern Ireland to show their support for a united Ireland. In Belfast, the flags of Israel and the Palestinians are potent symbols of conflict, but they divide Catholics and Protestants rather than Jews and Muslims. In the complex web of alliances that underpins Northern Ireland politics, the star of David has been adopted by pro-British Loyalists, mainly Protestants, many of whom sympathise with Israel's struggle against Islamic militants. Flying the green, black and red of flag of the Palestinian territories, meanwhile, is a sign of support for Catholic Irish Nationalism and their aspiration for a united Ireland against what many see as a British occupation. The flags are among dozens that have been adopted by the working class Catholic and Protestant areas that have for decades been at the focus of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland.
