A woman walks past a man collecting garbage in a working class area of Freetown, Sierra Leone, November 19, 2012. With its galloping growth rate of an estimated 21 percent this year, driven by new iron ore projects and recent oil discoveries, Sierra Leone is being grouped by economists with the bounding "African lions" - countries from the continent that are leading the pack of the fastest growing in the world. But Sierra Leone's business prospects may look considerably sleeker from a Johannesburg office or boutique hotel than from the pot-holed streets of Freetown, where things like available cash, power, transport and the Internet are services only obtained with difficulty, by those who can afford to get them.

Street cleaners from the Akhdam community collect garbage in Yemen's southwestern city of Taiz
Street cleaners from the Akhdam community collect garbage in Yemen's southwestern city of Taiz October 10, 2012. Yemeni Akhdam, or servants, are similar to hereditary castes, but are distinguished by their African features and the menial jobs they perform. Widespread prejudice places the Akhdam at the bottom of Yemen's social ladder. Asked about the origins of the Akhdam, Yemenis say they are descendants of Ethiopians who crossed the Red Sea to conquer Yemen before the arrival of Islam some 1,400 years ago - making them outsiders in their own country. Most live in slum areas in the outskirts of the capital Sanaa and other main cities. They reside in small huts haphazardly built of wood and cloth, without basic services such as running water, electricity and sewage networks. Picture taken October 10, 2012.

Braced to cut costs when Britain is facing the biggest government deficit in its history, a London council is trying the budget airline approach. Calling the scheme "EasyCouncil" after airlines like orange-liveried EasyJet or Ireland's Ryanair, Conservative-run Barnet wants to allow residents to pay less local tax for basic services, making top-up payments for services such as more regular rubbish collections or fast-tracked planning.

A dustman walks over a bridge at a station during a strike by the Municipal Transport Service company BVG in Berlin March 10, 2008. A wage conflict at Berlin's local transport operator BVG has paralysed bus, tram and underground services in the capital since last Wednesday. German rubbish collectors, nursery workers and other public sector employees could also stage new strikes, after talks between the government and service sector trade union Verdi ended on Friday without a wage deal for some two million federal and local government staff and headed for arbitration.

A man looks for recyclable items in a rubbish bin in Singapore February 15, 2008. Singapore said on Friday it will keep income tax unchanged, a surprise move that leaves the top personal rate at 20 percent, and said the small city-state could not insulate itself from global inflation. Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam said that taxpayers will get an income tax rebate of 20 percent with the rebate capped at S$2,000 ($1,415).
