The Wider Image: Manila's slums an endless battle for firefighters
One scorching afternoon this month, inhabitants of a slum in the Philippine capital frantically hurled buckets of water to try to save their homes from a raging fire. Six hours later, their efforts proved to no avail. There have been over 2,200 fires in Manila this year and the majority of these have occurred in slum areas, data from the Bureau of Fire Protection showed. In a country with a yawning wealth gap, the hardest hit are the hundreds of thousands of urban poor who call the shanties home. For the capital's thousands of firefighters, the slums are sprawling, unregulated tinderboxes. Tangles of drooping wires run from one electric post to another along the narrow alleys of the city's most neglected communities, crowded with shacks made from plywood and coconut tree lumber. Fire safety and building codes are unheard of. The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) said the so-called informal settlers complicate efforts to save property and lives.

Residents of a Japanese village well-outside of an evacuation zone set around a crippled nuclear power plant have been told to prepare to be evacuated, a local official said on Monday. The monitor indicates 1.26 microsieverts per hour. Generally, people are exposed to about 1 to 10 millisieverts of radiation a year from natural background radiation, caused by radioactive substances in the air and soil. One thousand microsieverts make 1 millisievert. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon (JAPAN - Tags: ENVIRONMENT DISASTER)

Uighur Autonomous Region September 13, 2003. PetroChina, which built the
world's longest desert highway to serve its oil wells, is contributing one
billion yuan ($121 million) to the project in an effort to protect the 522km
(326 miles) highway from being engulfed by encroaching sand. The highway
winds from Lunnan Oilfield, at the northern edge of the desert, to Minfeng
County at the south, dividing into two parts the 340,000 sq km Taklimakan,
the world's second largest moving desert. Research by Xinjiang Ecology and
Geography Research Institute shows that the speed of desertification in
Xinjiang in the past 10 years has decreased by 50 percent. Picture taken

A wilted sunflower droops over a busy Beijing throughfare, as traffic goes by July 21. During U.S. President Clinton's visit to China last month he made an impassioned plea to Chinese to work to protect the environment. Clinton said that China was set to overtake the United States as the world's largest producer of greenhouse gasses and that global warming could have a disasterous effects in the next century. Protecting the enviornment is a major challenge for China, where farmers must often till pesticide-soaked fields, factories belch untreated waste into rivers and tens of millions live in cities cloaked in sulphurous coal smoke and industrial fumes.
