Women pause while selling vegetables, fish and other Melanesian staples in Honiara March 4, 2011. Solomon Islands can still count on strong demand for palm oil and copra -- the dried white flesh of the coconut used to make coconut oil -- even as its exports of timber and fish wane. Women cook yellow fish and burnt-black potatoes smouldering in roadside umu pits; men weighed down with coconuts and pineapples trek to village markets. Picture taken March 4.

Two of three released hostages, Alfred Tony (L) and Peter Kesimo of the
Anglican Melanesian Brotherhood of the Church of Melanesia, are
welcomed by friends and relatives in the Solomon Island's capital
Honiara July 23, 2003 after they were released by the warlord Harold
Keke. Solomons MP Yukio Sato, who returned from meeting Keke on
Wednesday, told Reuters the rebel leader said he would continue to
uphold a ceasefire he announced two weeks ago. But a defiant Keke told
an Australian TV reporter he would not surrender and would not give up
his weapons, adding he was defending Solomon Islanders' rights against
corrupt politicians. Keke also released three of nine hostages he is
holding. REUTERS/David Gray
