The Wider Image: Life in Jordan's Zaatari Camp
Mohammad Othman's bicycle route through the marketplace in the Syrian refugee camp of Zaatari was once a struggle against a tide of people. Now it's an easy ride. So many residents have left for the West, or been forced back to Syria by Jordanian authorities, that Zaatari, once the fastest-growing refugee camp in the Middle East, has gone quiet. Where there had been empty desert, a sprawling slum city emerged, with a population of 125,000 at its peak. Around half a million people have passed through.Shops sprang up offering everything from ice cream to pizzas, mobile phones or wedding gown rentals. Prime spots changed hands for thousands of dollars. REUTERS/Ammar Awad SEARCH "ZAATARI LIFE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY ?

Barclays Plc's half-year profit rose 44 percent as bad loans dropped sharply and it made a big accounting gain on its own debt, offsetting a second-quarter slowdown at its investment bank. Barclays shares dipped 2 percent as analysts said the investment bank performance was resilient but uninspiring, costs rose faster than expected and Spanish bad debts remain a worry.

A commuter pedals off from a near-empty Velib self-service bicycle rack in Paris during a nationwide transport strike October 18, 2007. French commuters struggled to work on Thursday after transport workers went on strike over plans to scrap their pension privileges, the biggest test so far of President Nicolas Sarkozy's ability to push through reforms. Unions called the 24-hour strike from late on Wednesday in an attempt to force concessions from the government, which plans to scrap privileges that allow a minority of public sector workers to retire earlier than their peers.

FOR RELEASE WITH STORY BC-SINGAPORE-ISLAND - A young boy cycles from a bicycle rental store on the island of Pulau Ubin. The island off the northern coast of Singapore with just 600 inhabitants, is something of an alter ego to the modern bustling city state. There are charming kelongs or fishing traps, plantations and mangrove swamps, all vestiges of a bygone era. Nature lovers come to the island, shaped like a boomerang and just eight km long and 1.5 km wide, to bird-watch and hike while sports enthusiast like to thrash around in the bush on moutain bikes. Picture taken on August 30.
