The Wider Image: Malnourished Venezuelans hope urgently needed aid arrives soon
Yaneidi Guzman has lost a third of her weight over the past three years as Venezuela's economic collapse made food unaffordable and she now hopes the opposition will succeed in bringing urgently needed foreign aid to the South American country. Guzman's clothes hang limply off her gaunt frame. The 38-year-old is one of many Venezuelans suffering from malnutrition as the once-prosperous, oil-rich OPEC nation has seen its economy halve in size over the last five years under President Nicolas Maduro. Venezuelans' diets have become ever more deficient in vitamins and protein, as currency controls restrict food imports and salaries fail to keep apace with inflation that is now above 2 million percent annually.

The Wider Image: Injured Venezuelan activists struggle to heal
Nearly 2,000 people were injured during four months of fierce anti-Maduro street protests, according to the public prosecutor's office. Rights groups think the number is probably higher. Venezuela has been torn by political and economic crises that have led to extreme shortages of food and medicine, crushing inflation and the collapse of the local currency. Its new government structure has been criticised as a dictatorship. Rubber bullets fired at close range, rocks, and tear gas canisters have caused most of the injuries, doctors and rights groups say. Most of those who have been hurt appear to be opposition protesters, but Maduro supporters, security forces and bystanders have also been harmed.

The Wider Image: Nigeria's struggling textile industry
President Muhammadu Buhari hopes to revive the once flourishing textile and leather industries in northern Nigeria to end the country's dependence on oil exports and diversify Africa's biggest economy. But a collapse in vital oil revenues has pushed the West African nation into its first recession in 25 years, making it difficult to provide state loans or improve the erratic power supply that has led to closure of most plants. Adding further woes, a central bank decision to keep the naira currency at a high rate versus the dollar has deterred foreign investors fearing to get caught eventually in yet another devaluation. There have been some limited Chinese investments in recent years into what is left of Nigeria's leather and textile industry, but most plants have remained closed since throwing in the towel in the 1980s and 1990s.

A man takes a picture of a board showing the Real-U.S. dollar and several foreign currencies exchange rates in Sao Paulo, September 24, 2015. Brazil's depressed currency rebounded on Thursday after the head of its central bank warned that it is ready to use all instruments in its arsenal to curtail the real's collapse as investors fret over the future of Latin America 's largest economy. The real, which earlier in the session had tumbled to a new all-time low of 4.248 to the U.S. dollar, bounced back to 4.069 after central bank president Alexandre Tombini, in an unscheduled press briefing, did not rule out selling part of the country's $371 billion foreign reserves to calm the exchange rate market.

A woman talks on the phone while walking past a board showing currency exchange rates of the U.S. dollar, Euro and the British pound (top-bottom) against the rouble in Moscow, Russia, July 28, 2015. Russia's growth prospects deteriorated sharply midway through last year, when an existing slowdown was compounded by Western economic sanctions over the Ukraine conflict and a collapse in the price of oil, the country's main export earner. The economic slide gathered pace from the start of 2015 as falls in retail sales and real wages deepened, reflecting weak consumer demand and high inflation linked to the weaker rouble.
