Plans by the leftist government of Prime Minister Victor Ponta to approve the tapping of natural resources in the European Union's second-poorest state have triggered nationwide protests since the start of September, throwing together local communities, environmentalists, civic rights groups and the clergy. While the two projects are separate and in different stages of development, protesters have criticised a lack of transparency in approving both. They demand stronger safeguards to protect Romania's environment and national heritage. REUTERS/Bogdan Cristel (ROMANIA - Tags: BUSINESS COMMODITIES CIVIL UNREST POLITICS ENVIRONMENT)

Some 150 supporters of same-sex rights, guarded by almost 2,000 policemen, staged the first Pride March in the Montenegrin capital on Sunday and hailed it as a herald of better times in the small European Union candidate country. After the tense but incident-free march, scuffles broke out between police and anti-gay opponents in several locations in Podgorica and police used teargas to disperse them, a Reuters reported on the scene said.

The cavity was formed at the site of wolframium, molybdenum and copper underground mines due to numerous explosive works in the middle of the 20th century which influenced the fall of the hilltop. Fans of rope-jumping, a kind of extreme sport involving a jump from a high point using an advanced system of amortization including mountaineering and rope safety equipment, arrive at Tuimsky Proval for about a 5-second-long free flight with speeds of up to 180 km (93 miles) per hour.

Performers wearing 19th century Allied forces and French military uniforms "attack" one another during a re-enactment of the Battle of the Nations in a field in the village of Markkleeberg near Leipzig October 20, 2013. The east German city of Leipzig commemorated the 200th anniversary of the largest battle of the Napoleonic Wars on Sunday by reenacting the Battle of Nations, with 6,000 military-historic association enthusiasts from all over Europe. The decisive encounter in which tens of thousands of soldiers were killed, took place from October 17-19, 1813, just outside of Leipzig. At the height of the hostilities Napoleon fielded more than 200,000 men against an Allied force of some 360,000 soldiers which included troops from Russia, Austria, Prussia and Sweden.

Former bargeman Viktor, 57, who refused to give his family name, looks out of a window of his wooden hut located in a forest some 55 km (34 miles) south of Russia's Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, October 17, 2013. A decade ago, Viktor decided to lead the life of a hermit, and settled in this secluded forest area hidden from civilisation. He reads the Bible, and survives mainly on fish, berries, mushrooms and other food he can find. Picture taken October 17, 2013.

Believers, dressed in purple, carry a replica of the painting of the "Lord of Miracles", Peru's most revered Catholic religious icon, in a major procession through central Lima October 18, 2013. The painting can be traced back to the colonial era when an Angolan slave drew an image of a black Jesus Christ on the walls of a hut in a plantation of Pachacamila, near Lima. The image is known as the "Lord of Miracles", after an earthquake in the 17th century destroyed most of the city, leaving only that mural standing.

Greenpeace activists protest inside a mock prison cell, in support of fellows activists who were detained on the boat Arctic Sunrise, during a rally at the Mahatma Gandhi monument in Mexico City October 18, 2013. Eleven Nobel Peace Prize laureates urged Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday to drop piracy charges against 30 people detained over a Greenpeace protest last month at an Arctic oil rig. The piracy charges, punishable by up to 15 years' jail, appear aimed at sending a message that Moscow will not tolerate attempts to disrupt its development of the resource-rich Arctic.

Jeh Johnson (C) looks on after U.S. President Barack Obama introduced him as his nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, October 18, 2013. Obama on Friday nominated former Pentagon attorney Johnson, a national security expert who had a role in ending the military's ban on gays in the military, to be Homeland Security chief. Johnson, who served as general counsel in the Department of Defense during Obama's first term, would succeed Janet Napolitano, who stepped down earlier this year. His nomination requires Senate confirmation. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst (UNITED STATES - Tags: POLITICS MILITARY)
