The detail of an under-ripe colza field is seen in Trumilly, northern France
The detail of an under-ripe colza field is seen in Trumilly, northern France, June 8, 2015. Below-average rainfall in key rapeseed growing areas of central France since spring has dampened farmers' hopes of repeating the hefty yields seen last season, with any change in the weather now seen as too late to make a difference, experts say. Concern has mounted that dry weather in the top three EU producers Germany, France and Poland could curb rapeseed yields and temper growing conditions that had forecasters expecting another large crop after a record in 2014.

A man walks past a pizzeria shop in the desert town of Agadez, Niger May 23, 2015. African migrants in overcrowded pickup trucks, encouraged by social media messages from friends who survived the perilous journey across the Mediterranean, set off from Agadez, an ancient trading town on the edge of the Sahara, to cross Niger in the uncertain journey towards Europe via Libya, where the collapse of the government has offered an open door for smugglers. Mostly young men, escaping grinding poverty in neighbouring Benin or Burkina Faso, face bandits and often have to pay bribes en route, on top of the hefty payments to people smugglers. International focus on the issue of migration into Europe has sharpened after hundreds of migrants drowned while trying to cross the sea from North Africa in overcrowded and unsafe vessels.

Containers wrapped with wet sacks filled with water to be used by migrants who are preparing to board a truck prior to their journey at a local immigration transit centre in the desert town of Agadez, Niger May 25, 2015. The containers are wrapped in wet sacks to keep the water cool. African migrants in overcrowded pickup trucks, encouraged by social media messages from friends who survived the perilous journey across the Mediterranean, set off from Agadez, an ancient trading town on the edge of the Sahara, to cross Niger in the uncertain journey towards Europe via Libya, where the collapse of the government has offered an open door for smugglers. Mostly young men, escaping grinding poverty in neighbouring Benin or Burkina Faso, face bandits and often have to pay bribes en route, on top of the hefty payments to people smugglers. International focus on the issue of migration into Europe has sharpened after hundreds of migrants drowned while trying to cross the sea from North Africa in overcrowded and unsafe vessels.
