A man carries a pick over his shoulder as he walks through the rubble of demolished dwellings in a "hutong", or small alley, in Beijing April 8, 2010. China risks growing social instability and even violence if the government does not take effective action to address rising public anger about forced evictions and demolitions, according to a report released last week by the Chinese Urgent Action Working Group, a China-based rights lobby.

Pallbearers in traditional clothes carry the coffin of Governor and the leader of Austria's Buendnis Zukunft Oesterreich (BZOe) party (Alliance for Austria's future) Joerg Haider into the Cathedral of Klagenfurt October 18, 2008. Thousands of Austrians mourned Joerg Haider on Saturday, a far-right populist
leader who died in a high-speed car crash a week ago. Around 25,000 mourners attended Haider's memorial service in the capital of the Alpine province where he was governor for over a decade and was seen by many as a leader with a common touch who took on the political establishment in Vienna.

Mineworkers search for gold inside a mine at El Corpus May 23, 2008. In the mountains of southern Honduras, hundreds of small-scale miners are scraping out tiny quantities of increasingly precious gold but their fervour could be threatening their lives and the environment. Artisanal miners wielding pickaxes use diesel generators to illuminate narrow mine-shafts in one of Central America's poorest nations. Many then use dangerous amounts of toxic mercury to extract the metal from the rocks they chip out. Picture taken May 23, 2008. To match feature MINING/ILLEGAL HONDURAS.

China's economy will avoid a post-Olympics recession, thanks to its vast size, rising consumer spending and big appetite for investment, one of the country's top economic advisers told a state newspaper. Beijing is spending some $35-40 billion on improved infrastructure ahead of the Games in August, as well as $2.1 billion to cover the cost of running them. REUTERS/Claro Cortes IV (CHINA)
