A Picture and its Story: Nigerian boy pulled from rubble remains calm amid chaos
The boy lay wide-eyed on a bed of outstretched arms. The men who carried him, and others looking on, cheered at the sight of the youngster who seconds earlier had been pulled from the rubble of a four-storey building that collapsed in Lagos, Nigeria. Nine-year-old Ademola Ayanbola had been in a classroom on the top floor of the building when it collapsed on Wednesday. One of around 100 pupils who attended the primary school in the Lagos Island district of Nigeria's commercial capital, he emerged with his face caked in white dust from the rubble and a bloody graze on the side of his head. "His eyes were open, so we knew he was alive. He wasn't shouting or crying. He was so calm," said Temilade Adelaja, the Reuters photographer who captured the moment. "People were shouting 'there's a child'. There were people everywhere, and lots of shouting. Then they brought him out," she said, describing the moments before his rescue. The men who surrounded him were a mix of rescue workers, residents and what locals refer to as "area boys" - youths who roam parts of Lagos in gangs. They were outside the collapsed building for hours under the tropical sun: searching, talking and sometimes arguing. The boy's father, Francis Ayanbola, had feared he would never see his son alive again when he heard the building had collapsed. First, he went to the site, he said. "When I got there everything was flat. I was just crying. I was expecting the death of my son," he said. Next, he said he visited two hospitals and saw six dead children. "I couldn't even look at their faces because I was feeling so bad," he said of the four boys and two girls he saw, none of whom he recognised. A friend eventually called Ayanbola to tell him his child was being treated at a hospital. REUTERS/Temilade Adelaja SEARCH "NIGERIA BOY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Smart Air, a company which invented the DIY air filter, said that their DIY device, which combines a basic household fan with a simple HEPA filter can reduce particulate air pollution indoors at low-cost. Awareness of the dangers of Beijing's skies is on the rise, thanks to growing data on its air quality. China will "declare war on pollution," Premier Li Keqiang told parliament in an opening address in 2014.

Kabul is one of the world's fastest growing cities and its streets are increasingly blocked by cars and buses. In the city's private driving schools, students pay a $60 fee for a 45-day course, which includes oral and practical driving tests at the country's Traffic Department. Some of the women who have signed up say learning to drive is a way to escape unwanted gazes and physical harassment on the cramped, crowded minibuses that are often the only method of urban public transport.

A school student with a sticker Front de Gauche leftist alliance on his forehead demonstrates over pension reforms in Nice, southeastern France October 12, 2010. French trade unions began a fresh wave of strikes against pension reform on Tuesday, testing the resolve of French government as the unpopular bill edges closer to becoming law. Rail services, flights and sea ports ran below capacity as the unions kept up their battle against a plan to make people work longer for their pensions, including raising the minimum retirement age to 62 from 60.
