However the practice in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, hazardous for humans and the environment, will still be hard to stop.

Locals watch from the beach as waves hit an Indonesian tanker that ran aground near Narathiwat in southern Thailand December 19, 2014. The tanker loaded with palm oil, previously hijacked by its crew members and then seized by Thai authorities, was anchored some 400 meters from the beach but strong wind and waves broke it free, according to local media.

A Roma child plays in the attic of a house in a slum in Tiszavasvari, east of Budapest September 26, 2014. Tiszavasvari, a town of 13,000, is by far the largest Jobbik-controlled municipality. Hungary's far-right Jobbik party is on track to take over dozens of city halls in a municipal election on October 12, 2014, handing it new powers that, critics say, it will use to persecute ethnic minorities. But the experience in Tiszavasvari is that even the most hardline agenda ends up running aground in the swamp of budget shortfalls, petty squabbles and failed schemes that make up local politics in Hungary. For the town's Roma, many of whom live in a slum of mud huts where half-naked children play in a trash-strewn ditch, the budget shortfall meant at least they did not have to add harassment by a far-right militia to their list of problems.
