Fu Jianghua (L), the head of Yangjia Hospital, checks a patient in the hospital in Wuyi County, Zhejiang Province, China October 19, 2015. Fu Jianghua has worked at Yangjia Hospital since 1983, when it was operated by a local mine, he is now the hospital's head. At Yangjia Hospital in a remote corner of China's eastern Zhejiang province, sufferers of dust lung spend much of their time hooked up to oxygen to treat lungs ravaged by work in a local mine, since shut down. Once equipped with high-tech machinery and 150 staff, the hospital has suffered from falling numbers and a lack of funding. With some of its windows broken and certain rooms abandoned, the hospital now treats just 30 patients. It's a close-knit community including family members, who prepare meals in makeshift kitchens, grow vegetables in the grounds and play cards to kill time. Dust lung, also known as pneumoconiosis, affects an estimated 6 million workers in China.

Across the Somali capital, a bombed-out shell after two decades of fighting, residents say Turkey has done more in eight months to shatter the perception that Mogadishu is a no-go zone than the international community has achieved in twenty years. Some 500 Turkish relief workers and volunteers poured into Mogadishu's bullet-scarred wastelands, unleashing a wave of humanitarian aid as the militants struck back with a string of suicide bombings and roadside blasts.

The fasting activist whose campaign for strict anti-corruption legislation has galvanised millions of Indians faced growing pressure on Sunday to show more flexibility amid signs that an embattled government was abandoning its hardline stance. Hazare, a 74-year-old self-styled Gandhian activist, was on his sixth day of fasting at an open ground in the capital. He says the hunger strike, which involves not eating but drinking water, will continue until the government passes his tough anti-graft bill.

Raquel Borges embraces her paralyzed lion Ariel at the living room of veterinarian Pereira's home in Sao Paulo July 20, 2011. Pereira's home has turned into a hospital since the 3-year-old lion started a landmark treatment to cure a rare autoimmune disease which paralyzed his legs about a year ago. Through an internet campaign launched on social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter, Borges has been managing to raise funds to pay for his $11,000 monthly hospital bills. Nearly 60,000 people have clicked on the "like" button on Facebook and hundreds of others made donations to two bank accounts linked to Borges' foundation aimed at helping abandoned animals. The 310-pound (140-kg) lion started limping over one year ago prompting doctors to carryout a surgery to remove a herniated disc which they believed was causing the problem. But the procedure only made things worse and his rear legs were soon paralyzed as well. As Ariel grew weaker, Borges decided to turn to alternative methods such as chiropractic therapy and acupuncture. According to Pereira, head of the team of vets who have been treating the lion, he has so far responded well to the procedures, according an interview with Reuters TV. Picture taken July 20, 2011.
