A woman checks lipstick applied on her lip, inside of a cosmetics shop in Sao Paulo, Brazil August 13, 2015. From cigarettes to lipstick to sandals, exports have emerged as a silver lining for Brazilian consumer goods companies that are suffering the worst domestic slump in over a decade. With Brazil's currency, the real, at a 12-year low, foreign sales have kept several companies in the black, helping them outperform rivals focused on the local market, according to a Reuters analysis of second-quarter earnings.

Today, the city's industrial zone is a wasteland and home to one in five of Bosnia's 27 percent registered unemployed. Days of unrest that began with a protest by workers from Dita and other idled factories last week in Tuzla have blown the lid on years of simmering post-war discontent. Rioters set fire to government buildings in some of Bosnia's biggest cities - Sarajevo, Tuzla, Zenica and Mostar and several hundred people were injured, most of them police in clashes with protesters.
