Refugees camp on a field as lightning strikes during a storm at the Greek-Macedonian border, near the village of Idomeni, August 21, 2015. Macedonian police fired tear gas and stun grenades to drive migrants and refugees back from its southern border from Greece on Friday but crowds continued to build up at a new bottleneck in an increasingly desperate flight to western Europe. At least 10 people were hurt in the brief flare-up, a day after the impoverished Balkan country declared a state of emergency on its border to halt a daily influx of up to 2,000 Syrians, Afghans, Iraqis and others heading north.

Egypt opened the Rafah border crossing on Sunday for incoming passengers from the Gaza Strip for the first time in almost two months, Palestinian and Egyptian officials said. Rafah is the only major crossing between impoverished Gaza, home to 1.8 million Palestinians, and the outside world that does not border Israel, which blockades the strip and allows passage mainly on humanitarian grounds.

SURUC, Turkey
RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
A cradle left behind by Syrian Kurdish refugees lies at the Turkish-Syrian border near Suruc, in this September 27, 2014 file photo.

A crossing point along the Turkish-Syrian border frontier was normally a hive of activity, with wailing children and families desperately trying to carry whatever they could manage across the dusty terrain.

To my surprise on this particular day, the refugee collection didn't start. Bewildered, I started to look around me. My eyes fell on an empty baby's cradle and I thought: "How is it possible for someone to leave behind such a basic, but important, thing for a baby? Were the owners in a hurry? Was there no space in the bus or truck?" As I photographed the cradle I thought how lonely and sad it seemed. For me, it signified a kind of hopelessness. If its owners had felt hope, perhaps they would not have left it.
I took four images using a 24mm wide-angle lens and photographed the deserted border area in the background aiming to illustrate the desperation the refugees feel, and the harshness of the environment, where baking sun can turn to driving rain in an instant. - Murad Sezer REUTERS/Murad Sezer (TURKEY - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST CONFLICT SOCIETY IMMIGRATION TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

Qin Zhengyu, 78, shows moles and tumours on her back in her home at Heshan village, in Shimen county, central China's Hunan Province, in this June 4, 2014 file photo.

Heshan is in an area rich in realgar, or arsenic disulphide, and is sometimes given the grim label 'cancer village'. Factories and mines sprang up to process this precious resource but they were shut down in 2011 because of the pollution they caused. Heshan residents say that many have died from cancer caused by arsenic poisoning.

I am no stranger to death and during my coverage of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake, I was witness to huge-scale tragedy. But this was the first time I saw people who lived as though they had a sword hanging over their heads all the time the desperation and hopelessness were unimaginable. - Jason Lee

A woman holds her child as she begs for money in Buenos Aires' financial district, July 31, 2014. Argentina defaulted for the second time in 12 years after last-ditch talks with what it called "vulture" creditors failed, as focus turned to whether big banks and funds would request the declaration of a "credit event".
