Argentine folk saint Gauchito Gil refused to fight in a civil war and was forced to live as an outlaw, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. After being captured, Gil told his executioner that he should pray for Gil's help to cure his sick son. The executioner repented for killing him and his son recovered miraculously, starting the cult of Gauchito Gil. Every year, tens of thousands of pilgrims visit the sanctuary where Gil's body is said to have been buried. REUTERS/Enrique Marcarian (ARGENTINA)

Local residents pan for gold in a creek bed near Dinkidi Hill in Didipio town


Local residents pan for gold in a creek bed near Dinkidi Hill in Didipio town, the site of a future large scale gold and copper mine, 270km (168 miles) north of Manila September 19, 2007. The sector's poor environmental record and its failure to share out profits during the local industry's heyday in the 1960s and 1970s have left people deeply distrustful of large-scale miners and has tripped up government efforts to attract billions of dollars in mining investments.

A conductor gives a signal before a train leaves Berlin central railway station September 17, 2007. Germany's draft law to partially privatise rail operator Deutsche Bahn breaches the constitution, according to the summary of a report commissioned by several federal states. The report, to be presented in Berlin on Monday, is the latest blow to the government's long-delayed plans to sell 20 to 25 percent of the country's largest state-owned company by 2009.

A Mauritius Echo Parakeet rests in Black River Gorge national park September 11, 2007. In the 1980s, there were only about 10 left alive. But, in a rare success story, a two-decade conservation programme in a wooded corner of Mauritius has brought the Echo Parakeet back from the brink of extinction. It is one of the only good news stories in Wednesday's IUCN Red List -- a list of threatened species compiled by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources -- which downgraded the species to "Endangered" from "Critically Endangered" in its last report.
