Bodies sway as a band beats out a rhythm in a corner of a 300-year-old courtyard in Turin's Cavallerizza Reale, part of a round-the-clock occupation staged to stop the building falling into the hands of developers. Elsewhere, activists set up art installations, prepare meals and care for a colony of bees in the former military academy and royal stables earmarked for luxury flats. The campaigners moved into the city-centre landmark more than two years ago and slowly transformed it into a community centre come gallery come sit-in protest. There is a working darkroom, performance spaces and beds where visitors can stay for up to three nights for free. REUTERS/Marco Bello SEARCH "CAVALLERIZZA REALE" FOR THIS STORY.

Members of the Indian Ex Servicemen Movement take part in a sit-in protest in New Delhi, India, September 5, 2015. The Indian government approved a long-awaited programme to equalise pension payments for retired military personnel despite it being a "huge fiscal burden," Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said on Saturday. The programme, known as "One Rank One Pension", or OROP, will ensure uniform pension payments to ex-servicemen who served at the same rank and for the same amount of time, regardless of the year they retired, among other measures. OROP plans to reconcile the rate of payments of current and past pensioners every five years, disappointing some ex-servicemen who wanted the review to happen more frequently.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Local women watch armed men, believed to be Russian soldiers, assemble near a Ukrainian military base in Perevalnoe in this March 5, 2014 file photo.

During Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsular in Ukraine, masked men without insignia had appeared at Ukrainian army bases and important transport hubs all over the peninsular. Although they declined to say who they were, their Russian accents, military kit and license plates left little doubt that Moscow had sent them.

The locals believed they would protect them from attackers from Kiev and consequently welcomed the Russian soldiers like liberators, bringing them flowers and food and flocking to wherever they set up base as if a travelling circus had come to town. These two women had clearly dressed up for the occasion and flirted with the young men in uniform, who were visibly grateful for the distraction to their sentry duty.

Eventually, Russian soldiers became less anxious to be seen by foreign media chatting with their Ukrainian counterparts across the compound walls. - Thomas Peter
