A worker from the Karabash copper smelter in Russia's Urals walks home
along a railway line. The century-old smelter towering over Karabash
has covered soil around the town in highly-toxic mercury and lead,
killing off trees, grass and local crops. Most of the town's children
suffer from asthma, skin diseases and severe lead poisoning, local
health officials say. Ecologists have named the town of 16,000 as one
of the most heavily polluted places on the planet. Picture taken March

A man walks past an abandoned mine in the town of Karabash in Russia's
Urals. The sign exhorts the town's 16,000-strong population to "Work
and be victorious in the name of Lenin". Karabash, named by ecologists
as one of the most heavily polluted places on the planet, is home to a
copper smelter which chokes the town with thousands of cubic tonnes of
waste. The plant was closed in 1987 over ecological concerns but
reopened in 1998. Heaps of slag and soil thick with lead and mercury
have replaced the traditional forest-covered plains of the Urals in
Karabash, named an ecological disaster area by the Russian government.
