Shortly after this photo was taken this tower fell.

A man stands in flood waters as fire burns down a home in the seventh ward of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina September 6, 2005. The toxic brew of chemicals and human waste in the New Orleans floodwaters will have to be pumped into the Mississippi River or Lake Pontchartrain, raising the specter of an environmental disaster on the heels of Hurricane Katrina, experts say.

Earthquake survivors wait for relief materials, outside their makeshift tents, at a relief camp in Poonch, 250km (156 miles) northwest from the northern Indian city of Jammu, October 16, 2005. The October 8 earthquake was most destructive to those parts of Indian and Pakistani Kashmir and Pakistan's northwest frontier that are both breathtakingly beautiful and not easy to access. The mountains are a problem, but so is the fact that India and Pakistan are at a tense stand-off over disputed Kashmir and Islamic militants are known to be active in the area, which makes parts of the region restricted to ordinary traffic.

Garments of would-be immigrants are hooked on a razor wire fence which separates Spain's North African enclave of Melilla from Morocco in Melilla October 3, 2005. Around 700 sub-Saharan migrants charged at border fences around Spain's North African enclave of Melilla on Monday, with about 200 managing to get over after the fence collapsed, officials said. It was the fourth such attempt at Spain's North African enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla since last week. Spain sent in the army to reinforce security at the outposts after five Africans were killed during an attempt to enter Ceuta last Thursday.
