The Wider Image: Scars begin to heal a decade after Sichuan quake
A decade after a massive earthquake rocked China's southwestern province of Sichuan, killing almost 70,000 people, the scars have begun to heal. The 7.9 magnitude quake which hit on May 12, 2008 was most devastating around its epicentre in Beichuan. Many of the houses that collapsed remain buried under the earth and are covered by overgrown bushes and weeds. In some of the houses still standing, now part of an open air memorial to the dead, wedding photos hang on the wall. Damaged school classrooms remain a mess, with books on the desks turning black with rot. Signs in Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean and French urge visitors to be careful where they tread to let the dead rest in peace. REUTERS/Jason Lee SEARCH "BEICHUAN ANNIVERSARY" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Residents resist demolition
You would never guess from inside Beverley Robinson's tidy flat, with its potted plants, family photos and panoramic view of London, that her building is awaiting demolition. But the corridor outside is eerily quiet and the children's playground downstairs lies empty and overgrown. Most neighbours have left and their old flats are shuttered up to deter squatters. The building is cut off from the street by a fence topped with sharp metal blades and manned by security guards. This is one of the flashpoints in London's housing crisis. Unaffordable rents and long waiting lists for social housing have made it harder and harder for people on low incomes to find homes in London, where average property prices have risen by 90 percent over the past 10 years, far outstripping income growth. Robinson and a few others are resisting a 1.5-billion-pound ($1.9-billion), two-decade scheme to flatten the dilapidated Aylesbury Estate, one of Britain's largest social housing projects, and build thousands of new homes in its place.REUTERS/Dylan Martinez SEARCH "AYLESBURY" FOR THIS STORY.

During World War One many French villages were destroyed, some never to be reconstructed because they were heavily damaged or because the nearby fields contain unexploded munitions, mines, explosives and artillery shells. The Camp de Suippes, opened in 1922, is a French Army training area for live artillery firing exercises, and closed to the public.

Sculpted by Felix Desruelles and inaugurated in 1930, it shows a young farmer paying tribute to a French soldier's grave on a battlefield which turns into a grain field. The Camp de Suippes, opened in 1922, is a French Army training area for live artillery firing exercises, and closed to the public. The camp includes five damaged villages, with their churches and cemeteries that are overgrown with vegetation. Picture taken November 3, 2015. REUTERS/ Charles Platiau

A "Borne du front" (Demarcation stone) with a helmet capping the milestone is seen near the entrance of Camp de Suippes, near Reims, France, November 3, 2015. A total of 118 markers were erected (22 in Belgium, 96 in France) in the years between 1921-1927 by French sculptor Paul Moreau-Vauthier to create a line of small monuments to be located along the line on the Western Front which was the furthest point to which the German Army had penetrated into France. The milestone reads "Here in 1918 at Souan the invader was pushed back". The Camp de Suippes, opened in 1922, is a French Army training area for live artillery firing exercises, and closed to the public. The camp includes five damaged villages, with their churches and cemeteries that are overgrown with vegetation. Picture taken November 3, 2015. REUTERS/ Charles Platiau

A warning road sign is posted near the entrance of the Camp de Suippes
A warning road sign is posted near the entrance of the Camp de Suippes, near Reims, France, November 3, 2015. During World War One many French villages were destroyed, some never to be reconstructed because they were heavily damaged or because the nearby fields contain unexploded munitions, mines, explosives and artillery shells. The Camp de Suippes, opened in 1922, is a French Army training area for live artillery firing exercises, and closed to the public. The camp includes five damaged villages, with their churches and cemeteries that are overgrown with vegetation. The sign reads "Permanent live firing area, Danger of Death, Prohibited zone".

A children's playground is overgrown on a partially abandoned part of the Aylesbury Estate in seen in south London, Britain October 15, 2015. In the past decade, 50 social housing estates with 30,000 homes have been regenerated across London. The total number of homes on those locations has doubled, but with a net loss of 8,000 homes available for the lowest social rents. Supporters say regeneration schemes create more and better homes in a city facing a housing shortage and eye-watering property prices. Objectors say they lead to social cleansing, with poor Londoners priced out as neighbourhoods go upmarket. REUTERS/Neil Hall

Stairs overgrown by vegetation are all that remain of where a house once stood in Waveland, Mississippi, August 26, 2015. FEMA described Waveland as "ground zero" for Hurricane Katrina. Next to a newly built city hall and a business center, dozens of housing lots remain empty. Grass and brush have grown around old "for sale" signs, some of them offering reduced prices. The whole region is littered with memories of what happened 10 years ago, and the possessions and the people that were lost. Picture taken August 26, 2015. REUTERS/Jonathan Bachman

Overgrown grass and weeds are seen around an abandoned military building in the deserted Yassiada in Marmara sea off Istanbul, Turkey, May 14, 2015. Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu inaugurated the "Democracy and Freedom Islands" complex in Yassiada, where the military tribunals sentenced then-prime minister Adnan Menderes along with two of his ministers to death after the May 27, 1960 coup. The complex is expected to be completed in a year and will include a democracy martyrs monument, a democracy museum, a hotel, conference hall, cafes and restaurants. The island was run by the Turkish Naval Forces until 1993, before being transferred to Istanbul University's department of Marine Life and Sea Products. In 2011, ownership of the island was first transferred to the Culture Ministry and then the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges (TOBB). Picture taken May 14, 2015. REUTERS/Murad Sezer
