Hong Kong, China - Peoples Republic of
CLEANER CARRIES AWAY TWO KITTENS AT A HOUSE IN HONG KONG.
A cleaner carries away two kittens at a house in Hong Kong May 9, 2003.
In the throes of a cleanup campaign against SARS, Hong Kong is trucking
30 tonnes of junk from the home of a woman who hoarded castoffs,
ranging from stray cats to broken refrigerators, for more than a
decade. If spread out, the rubbish would cover up to three football
courts, among the corpses of cats and rats - and the maggots infesting
them - a team of 20 cleaners also turned up a rusty air-conditioner
during a week of sifting. REUTERS/Kin Cheung
