An oil rig is raised for the first time to drill an escape hole for trapped miners in Copiapo
The derrick of an oil rig belonging to Canada's Precision Drilling Corporation is raised for the first time as assembly work continues before starting to drill an escape hole to rescue 33 miners trapped in the San Jose mine, in Copiapo September 16, 2010. Facing one of the world's most challenging resuce operations, engineers are already using two drills to reach the miners stuck in a tunnel 2,300 feet (700 meters) below ground, and are erecting a third normally used to drill for oil.

A Schramm T130 Drill, normally used to bore water wells, arrives at the copper and gold mine where 33 miners have been trapped underground since August 5, in Copiapo some 725 km (450 miles) north of Santiago, September 3, 2010. The new drill is being used parallel to another slower one already working, in a bid to reach the miners stuck in a hot and humid tunnel 2,300 feet (700 meters) underground for the past 29 days.

An assistant fixes a plastic statuette of 16th-century Protestant reformer Martin Luther, which is part of the art installation 'Martin Luther - I'm standing here' by German artist Ottmar Hoerl, in the main square in Wittenberg, eastern Germany August 11, 2010. The installation of 800 one-metre high figurines, based on a statue of Martin Luther on the town square and intended to replace it while it is being renovated, will be open to the public on August 14 and runs till September 12, 2010. Hoerl's creation has created some controversy, with some Protestant theologians saying the statuettes, make a mockery of Luther's achievements.

A construction worker uses a jack hammer to remove support pillars for the final floor of a high rise building in north Tehran April 15, 2010. The municipality said they had built one too many floors than their permit allowed. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has asked 5 million Tehranis to evacuate the capital since they know their sprawling metropolis is due for a massive earthquake. When the last major earthquake hit, in 1831, Tehran was tiny compared to the metropolis where today the work-day population can reach 15 million. Picture taken April 15, 2010.

A labourer balances himself on a rock wall as he uses his feet to guide a jackhammer at a quarry in the town of Kaduwela, 20km (12 miles) east of Colombo, February 26, 2010. The labourers working in the quarries earn about 1800 Sri Lankan Rupees ($15) a day, depending on how much rocks they can break to be put into lorry trucks.
