A woman carries tarpaulins to be distributed to fellow residents at a refugee camp for Haitians returning from the Dominican Republic on the outskirts of Anse-a-Pitres, Haiti, September 6, 2015. Dominican officials last month began implementing a controversial immigration program targeting Haitian migrants and Dominican-born people of Haitian descent. The program centers on round-ups and deportations that have triggered concerns about a slow-growing border migration crisis in the poorest country in the Americas. So far about 1,500 people have been deported at a pace of 50 to 100 per day, according to relief officials with access to records supplied by the Dominican government. The officials asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the number of deportees. Thousands more have fled the Dominican Republic out of fear of arrest or harassment, scared by neighbors, bosses, coworkers and police or immigration officials. Picture taken September 6, 2015.

Maralal, a small, arid town about an eight-hour drive north of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, holds an annual camel festival, bringing together members of the Samburu, Turkana and Pokot semi-nomadic cattle-herding tribes. Relations are mostly peaceful at the moment, but cattle rustling and clashes over grazing and farming land are common. As well as camel races, the festival includes tribal dances, market stalls, travelling photo booths and a few old-fashioned fairground rides, while tents claim to contain the shortest man or the smallest woman.REUTERS/Goran Tomasevic PICTURE 16 OF 20 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "TRIBAL FESTIVAL OF MARALAL".
