Displaced cocoa farmers from the village of Baleko-Niegre stand with their belongings in a protected forest about 70 km (43 miles) from the city of Sassandra, south western Ivory Coast June 16, 2013. The Ivory Coast is clearing tens of thousands of cocoa farmers from protected forests, threatening exports from the world's top grower and leading to complaints about human rights abuses. President Alassane Ouattara's government says it is prepared to pay the economic price of phasing agriculture out to save the dwindling tropical forest and the security services have started flattening houses and forcefully removing the farmers.

Cholera has sickened more than 450,000 people in the nation of 10 million, or nearly 5 percent of the population, and killed more than 6,000 people. More people died of cholera last year in Haiti than in any other part of the world, and the disease is likely to become the leading killer of children under five in Haiti, estimates NGO Partners in Health.
