A man waves a flag in front of Romania's parliament during a protest in Bucharest October 20, 2013 against plans by U.S. energy group Chevron to explore for shale gas in a poor eastern region and a Canadian company's project to set up Europe's biggest open cast gold mine in Romania. 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)

Police fire teargas at opponents of same-sex rights in Podgorica October 20, 2013. 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.

Yuriy Yuferov, 31, a member of the "Exit Point" amateur rope-jumping group dressed in a fancy dress costume of a pirate and Father Frost (the Russian equivalent of Santa Claus) reacts after taking a rope jump from a 120-metre (394 feet) high rock down to a man-made crater called "Tuimsky Proval" (Tuimsky cavity), outside the town of Tuim in Khakassia region, October 19, 2013. 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.

When Gillani, the highest ranking female police officer in Pakistan's most conservative province, wanted to join the force she had to defy her father, forego marriage and pay for her own basic training. During the next 19 years, Gillani and her faithful sidekick Rizwana Zafar, brought up as a boy after becoming her frustrated father's ninth daughter, have battled bandits, earthquakes and militants.
