Indonesia's weather agency failed to predict that the effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon this year would be worse than in 1997, a senior minister said on Wednesday, as the government considers declaring a national emergency due to forest fires. The fires raging across the archipelago have created a haze that has blanketed much of Southeast Asia in recent months and, according to authorities, have left more than half a million Indonesians suffering from respiratory ailments.REUTERS/Darren Whiteside

Fu Jianghua has worked at Yangjia Hospital since 1983, when it was operated by a local mine, he is now the hospital's head. At Yangjia Hospital in a remote corner of China's eastern Zhejiang province, sufferers of dust lung spend much of their time hooked up to oxygen to treat lungs ravaged by work in a local mine, since shut down. Once equipped with high-tech machinery and 150 staff, the hospital has suffered from falling numbers and a lack of funding. With some of its windows broken and certain rooms abandoned, the hospital now treats just 30 patients. It's a close-knit community including family members, who prepare meals in makeshift kitchens, grow vegetables in the grounds and play cards to kill time.

When Scannell was first diagnosed with brain metastases and an incurable melanoma, he was not expected to live long. Now he flies to Los Angeles from his home in Oklahoma every three weeks for injections of the drug Lambrolizumab, or MK-3475, from which he says he feels no negative side effects. He adds that the drug appears to help his body's immune system fight off his cancer cells, and testing indicates a significant reduction in the number and size of his cancers. He is now continuing to work and is helping some of his colleagues rebuild after their losses in the Oklahoma tornadoes earlier this year.

Cancer patient and blind Palestinian girl Aseel al-Haj Ahmed, 9, holds her mother's hand as she receives a regular treatment in a hospital in Gaza City April 29, 2013. Al-Haj Ahmed was afflicted with cancer when she was four months old, when doctors had to remove both her eyes and replace them with ocular prostheses as a result of a malignant tumour that struck her spinal cord. The schoolgirl is looked after by her unemployed father whose impoverished family includes his wife and four other children. Al-Haj Ahmed undergoes medical checks in local hospitals on a regular basis, with bills paid for by the Ministry of Health and other charity organisations.

Aftershocks rattled central Myanmar after an earthquake that killed at least 11 people, with that toll likely to rise on Monday as several workers were missing after a half-built bridge collapsed on the Irrawaddy River. The magnitude 6.8 earthquake early on Sunday struck about 60 km (37 miles) northwest of Mandalay,Myanmar's second-biggest city, near the town of Shwebo. It was felt in Thailand and other neighbouring countries. REUTERS/Soe Zeya Tun (MYANMAR - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY)

Two-hour old daughter (R) of 17-year old Nakor rests with the other new-born baby at a hospital in Chiang Mai's Fang district October 2, 2012. Thailand has the second highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the world, according to Thai government data. A World Health Organization (WHO) report shows the average number of pregnancies for every 1,000 girls in the 15-19 age group is 65 but that figure rises to 70 in Thailand. Teen pregnancy and early child marriage are among the major obstacles that deny the rights of 75 million adolescent girls worldwide to education, says Plan International, a development charity that works with communities in 45 countries to alleviate child poverty. The first U.N. declared International Day of the Girl will be marked on October 11, 2012 with a focus on rights of the girls around the world. Picture taken October 2, 2012.

South African police opened fire on Thursday against thousands of striking miners armed with machetes and sticks at Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine, leaving several bloodied corpses lying on the ground. A Reuters cameraman said he saw at least seven bodies after the shooting, which occurred when police laying out barricades of barbed wire were outflanked by some of an estimated 3,000 miners massed on a rocky outcrop near the mine, 100 km (60 miles) northwest of Johannesburg.

The risk of death from the surgery is 1 in 1,700, according to the National Kidney Foundation, and life expectancy is said to be unchanged with one kidney. Picture taken August 1, 2012.
