A policeman paints his face in preparation for a performance at a school near the police headquarters of the municipality of San Nicolas de los Garza, neighbouring Monterrey January 19, 2011. Amid jokes and laughter, two Mexican police officers dressed as clowns hope to instil values into the children of the country's richest city at a time when drug cartels have forced escalated violence and recruit more and more young assassins every day. Officers Tomas and Alexandro put on makeup for 40 minutes every day to portray Bombon Dulcito (Marshmallow) and Trompetillas (Little Trumpets) in a laudable and uncommon initiative in a country where police are constantly accused of corruption and of being infiltrated by drug traffickers.

South Sudanese voted overwhelmingly to declare independence from the north in a referendum, according to officials in seven out of the region's ten states polled by Reuters on Wednesday.

People walk by the Corona Save the Beach Hotel, an unusual hotel built with garbage, in central Madrid January 20, 2011. The hotel, designed by German eco-artist H.A. Schult, has no intentions of competing with The Ritz or any luxury hotel: it's built using 12 tonnes of garbage collected from the beaches of Spain, Italy, France and Belgium, rubbish dumps and flea markets. The goal of Schult's installation is to raise awareness of the damage consumerism has on the world beaches. REUTERS/Andrea Comas (SPAIN - Tags: BUSINESS SOCIETY TRAVEL ENVIRONMENT)
