Anniversary: Hong Kong: 20 years since the end of British rule
Activists fight to save the Queen's Pier in Hong Kong's financial district, August 1, 2007. ÊThe colonial-era pier in the city's financial heart became a civic battleground in 2007. The government wanted it removed for reclamation and roadworks, angering activists fighting to save what they viewed as a historic site. The saga reached boiling point in August when police forcibly evicted a band of activists and hunger strikers who had camped there for months. It was demolished in 2008.

The first tourists to the site of one of the most decisive battles in European history arrived the very next day to inspect a scene of carnage where tens of thousands lay dead or wounded. They came by carriage from Brussels on a roughly 8-mile journey. Nearly 200 years after the Battle of Waterloo on June 18, 1815, a trip to the site in present-day Belgium by train, bus and then on foot through a tangle of roadworks won't end in a blood-stained vista, but can still pose a challenge.
