The Wider Image: Journey to Antarctica: seals, penguins and glacial beauty
Greenpeace brought Reuters photo and television journalists along for a segment of the voyage, bringing them on the Arctic Sunrise from Chile through the rough waters of the Drake Passage, to the Antarctic Peninsula Ð which was brimming with wildlife. Photographer Alexandre Meneghini: "The trip began in Punta Arenas, the capital of Magallanes region, Chile. We had spent three days aboard the Arctic Sunrise, a Greenpeace ship docked in one of the city's harbours, to test our equipment and conduct security drills. I was eager to get to Antarctica. Greenpeace, the global environmental group, organised the journey to raise awareness of, and support for, a European Union proposal to create the biggest protected area on Earth in Antarctica. The plan was to create a safe haven for marine life there from industrial fishing. The strategy involved documenting the effects of climate change, pollution and fishing on native wildlife. Pictures and video footage, specimen samples from the Antarctic seafloor, and surface water sampling for microplastics were all collected by Greenpeace to help build the case for the sanctuary."

A premature baby lies in a crib at the Fabella government maternity hospital in Manila August 5, 2012. The United Nations on Sunday called on Philippine leaders to pass the reproductive health bill, two days before the House of Representatives is scheduled to take a crucial vote on whether to end debates on the measure. It argued that the RH bill is not about population numbers as it is about ensuring a life of health and dignity. The UN statement also said, Family Health Survey (FHS), which was conducted from August to September 2011 with a recall period of six years for the data, estimated that for every 100,000 live births, there are 221 women dying due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth. This was a 36 percent increase from the 2006 Family Planning Survey data, which showed 162 estimated deaths per 100,000 live births. The FHS also estimated that, across all regions in the Philippines, the number of girls 15 to 19 years old who have delivered live births was 54 per 1,000 live births from 39 in 2006. For the 20 to 24 age group, the increase was to 159 per 1,000 live births from 149 in the 2006 survey. Picture taken August 5, 2012. REUTERS/Erik De Castro (PHILIPPINES - Tags: POLITICS HEALTH)

Egypt's military rulers dismissed complaints from protesters on Friday that it was entrenching its rule and blamed Morsy for stirring up emotions that drew thousands onto Cairo's Tahrir Square. Morsy, shot back that the generals were defying the democratic will of the people and said protests would go on. But he stopped short of repeating a claim to have won last weekend's election, urging simply a rapid announcement of the result, and praised the army as "patriotic".

Palestinian woman sits beside dialysis machine at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza
A Palestinian woman sits beside a dialysis machine inside the kidney section at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza October 27, 2008. The nearly empty corridors of Gaza's main Shifa Hospital testified to the ailing state of health care in the Hamas-controlled territory. A crisis-level shortage of drugs and spare parts for medical equipment and a two-month-old strike by health care workers have combined to add more misery to the lives of the 1.5 million inhabitants of the impoverished Gaza Strip.

A premature baby receives breathing assistance as its lungs are still underdeveloped while lying in an incubator at the Neonatal Intensive Care unit at the Ramon Gonzalez Coro maternity hospital in Havana January 24, 2008. Cuba has an infant mortality rate on a par with rich industrialized nations, of 5.3 deaths per 1,000 live births, which it boasts is lower than in the United States. Maternal mortality was down from 49.4 to 31.1 deaths per 100,000 live births.
