A beggar sits at the entrance of the "Gesu Squat," an abandoned convent, in Brussels November 4, 2013. Some 200 squatters, including 90 children, were evicted early in the morning after a ruling by the district mayor, local media reported. The giant building may be turned into a hotel and luxury apartments, with a project proposed by a Swiss developer. The banner reads as "Under your eyes, 220 people out on the streets and one empty building". REUTERS/Francois Lenoir (BELGIUM - Tags: SOCIETY POVERTY POLITICS REAL ESTATE BUSINESS)

Catholic nuns attend mass at the Jesuit Apostolic Center in Seoul August 26, 2013. Hundreds of Catholic nuns and monks from convents across the country gathered in Seoul on Monday to attend mass together as they demand an apology from South Korean President Park Geun-Hye, to take responsibility for a spy agency scandal, and a reform of the national spy agency. Local media reported that the National Intelligence Service (NIS) conducted an online smear campaign to sway public opinion in favor of then ruling Saenuri party candidate Park before last December's presidential election.

A resident cleans a corridor in the abandoned convent known as Gesu, in Brussels April 18, 2013. Some 160 squatters including 60 children may face expulsion in Brussels when a 90-million-euro project by a Swiss developer to turn their dwellings into a luxury hotel and apartments gets the go ahead. Only a few metro stops from the European institutions and the city's touristic highlights, the Gesu church and convent have remained vacant for decades and were bought by Swiss developer Rosebud Heritage in 2007, who agreed that the property could be used as a squat until the works started. Most of the residents of the squat are immigrants coming from the Czech Republic, Spain, Brazil and Morocco, looking to settle in Belgium. Some families have lived in Belgium for many years and some have stayed in the squat for months. With monthly rents at the squat currently at about 25 euros per adult, it is unlikely that the current residents will be able to move into the new apartments once they are completed.

Tibetan Buddhist nuns from the Ganden Jangchup Choeling nunnery take a break from repairing a mountain road near the town of Daofu, Sichuan province November 13, 2011. The nunnery stands hidden from view on an isolated mountain-top in southwestern China, accessible only by a twisting, rocky road. Palden Choetso, the 35-year-old Tibetan Buddhist nun who burned herself to death on a public street an hour's drive away on November 3, 2011, the latest in a string of self-immolations to protest against Chinese religious controls over Tibet, lived in a mud-brick hut at the nunnery. In China, eleven Tibetan monks and nuns -- some former clergy -- have resorted to the extreme protest since March this year. At least six have been fatal. Picture taken November 13, 2011.
