Pictures of the Year: Persecuted Rohingya Muslims flee violence in Myanmar
Rohingya refugees arrive to the Bangladeshi side of the Naf River after crossing the border from Myanmar, in Palang Khali, Bangladesh, October 16, 2017. Reuters photographer Jorge Silva: "We had been expecting this massive crossing of people along the Naf river from Myanmar for some days. Before dawn I started walking through the rice field in Palang Khali. After almost two hours walking, a loud murmur indicated they were thousands of people, all wet, caked in mud, exhausted, starving, and in a state of panic. People using the very last of their energy to survive. They crossed the river during the night, paying smugglers to carry them in their boats. I got to one of the several points where they were disembarking. They had to walk across the mangrove with water up to their waists, to reach the slippery embankments of the rice field, where they would be safe and could rest. The scene was overwhelming. The sound of splashes on the water, shouting, babies and children crying, created an atmosphere of despair that is very hard to forget."

The Wider Image: Brazilians toil for gold in illegal Amazon mines
Informal mining in Brazil is seen by many as a scourge polluting the Amazon rainforest, poisoning indigenous tribes and robbing the nation of its wealth. For others it is a way of life. Brazilian garimpos, or wildcat mines, are operated by small crews of men, often caked in red-brown mud and working with rudimentary pans, shovels and sluice boxes that have been used for centuries. More sophisticated operations use water cannons and boats sucking mud from the bottoms of rivers. Regardless of the method, searching for gold and other minerals like cassiterite and niobium is dirty, dangerous and often illegal. "Looking for gold is like playing in a casino," said a 48-year-old miner. Miners asked not to be named, saying they feared the police as much of their work is illegal. Garimpos are in the spotlight as Brazil debates opening an area known as Renca in the northern Amazon forest to mining, which has met with stiff resistance from environmentalists. Mines and Energy Minister Fernando Coelho Filho argues that licensed mining will be an improvement over the estimated 1,000 people currently mining in the reserve illegally. Crepurizao lies hundreds of miles south of Renca, but gives a window into life in the garimpos caught up in the debate. Living in makeshift homes of wood and plastic, miners in the area ship some 60 kilograms of gold per month, according to traders. That much pure gold is worth millions of dollars on the global market, but high costs and layers of traders in the local market leave most miners living on the brink of poverty.

Mud cakes the feet of a man working at an illegal wildcat gold mine on an area of deforested Amazon rainforest near the city of Morais Almeida, Para State June 25, 2013. The Amazon rainforest is being eaten away at by deforestation, much of which takes place as areas are burnt by large fires to clear land for agriculture. Initial data from Brazil's space agency suggests that destruction of the vast rainforest - the largest in the world - spiked by more than a third over the past year, wiping out an area more than twice the size of the city of Los Angeles. If the figures are borne out by follow-up data, they would confirm fears of scientists and environmental activists who warn that farming, mining and Amazon infrastructure projects, coupled with changes to Brazil's long-standing environmental policies, are reversing progress made against deforestation. Environmental issues will be under the spotlight as a United Nations Climate Change Conference opens in Warsaw, Poland on November 11. Picture taken on June 25, 2013.

The mining operation consists of channelling escaping volcanic gasses through networks of ceramic pipes from an active vent at the edge of the crater lake, resulting in the condensation of molten sulphur. The deep red molten sulphur pours slowly from the end of the pipes into pools on the ground, turning into yellow cakes of sulphur after it cools. It is then broken into large pieces to be carried by labourers to a collection centre at the foot of the volcano. REUTERS/Tim Chong (INDONESIA - Tags: ENVIRONMENT SOCIETY EMPLOYMENT BUSINESS)
