On August 14, 2015, a group of World War Two survivors in Hong Kong, including Lam, took their 70-year-old fight and demanded Tokyo to convert millions of Japanese military yen issued during the war into usable money. Japan occupied Hong Kong for three years and eight months, during which people were forced to exchange their legal tender into military yen. China will hold a military parade on Thursday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the surrender of Japan. Picture taken June 25, 2015. REUTERS/Bobby Yip TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

Hussain, a 34 year old Muslim convert visits the neighborhood where he spent his childhood in west London, December 5, 2011. Hussain, formerly Jason Thomas, whose family are Christians and originate from the Caribbean, adopted the religion after a troublesome upbringing saw him end up homeless and eventually imprisoned. "I got involved in robbing shops and business people and stealing designer clothes from the West End's expensive shops. My life consisted of waking up in the morning, smoking weed, hanging out on the council estate and doing crime," he said. "But when I was in prison, I thought there must be more to life than just robbing and stealing." Thomas, who now visits socially deprived areas and counsels troubled youths against committing crime, was taken to the Brixton Mosque in South London by his cousin, who introduced him to Islam.

Despite being in power for 12 years and bringing plenty of new schools and clinics to poor areas, Chavez has failed to fix Venezuela's housing shortfall -- currently at 2 million units. That, say critics, demonstrates the failure of socialism in Venezuela, where the 500,000 new homes built during Chavez's rule, about two-thirds by the private sector, is no better than the rate of construction under his predecessors. Not surprisingly, Chavez has sought to take the initiative with a new "Grand Housing Mission" -- his eighth such construction plan -- aiming to build 2 million new units by 2017 with funds available from higher global oil prices.

Patricia Ruiz, 21, wraps herself in a blanket as she waits with hundreds of other people to achieve their dream of buying affordable housing in Fuenlabrada, outside Madrid, November 12, 2008. Spanish property developer Jose Moreno, also known as "Pocero de Fuenlabrada", has promised to build over 2,000 cheap homes for people between the ages of 18 and 35 who do not own any property. That promise has attracted hundreds of people who have been willing to sleep on the street in tents to wait until November 15, the day when Moreno will officially start registration for the future property development.
