A dying bird covered in spilled oil lies on a rock on the banks of the San Juan river in Cadereyta
A dying bird covered in spilled oil lies on a rock on the banks of the San Juan river in Cadereyta August 26, 2014. An oil pipeline spill that contaminated the river in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon will take months to clean up, the country's top water authority said on Thursday. The 24-inch Madero-Cadereyta pipeline, owned by national oil company Pemex, was ruptured when thieves attempted to tap into it, the company said on Sunday.

Boys play water as their parents pan for gold on a rocky bank of the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar's northern Kachin State February 24, 2012. About 100 gold prospectors work along the river at this site on the outskirts of the state capital Myitkyina earning anywhere from $3-12 a day. There are no large nuggets of gold in the rocks and sand of the Irrawaddy. Rather, the prospectors laboriously sift and filter their way down to a fine black silt in which minute flecks of gold can sometimes be found. At the end of the day they process the silt with chemicals to remove the gold. A day's work yields an amount of gold roughly the size of a grain or two of rice.

A Palestinian labourer salvages rocks near the border with Israel, on the eve of the first anniversary of a three-week Gaza war that killed some 1,400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis, December 26, 2009. Israeli soldiers shot and killed three Palestinians near a border fence in northern Gaza they suspected of trying to infiltrate from the Hamas-ruled territory but a Hamas security source said the three were shot as they collected scrap metal. A total of six Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces on Saturday in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip, in the bloodiest violent outbreak in months.

Partly under EU pressure, the government has taken small steps to improve cultural rights for Turkey's 12 million Kurds. The government plan is expected to allow Kurdish departments to be set up at university and pumping billions of dollars into the impoverished southeast. REUTERS/Murad Sezer (TURKEY POLITICS SOCIETY)
