Mexican sewer diver Julio Cu Camara, 52, is lowered down in a cage during a dive at the city's drainage system plant in Mexico City March 21, 2013. Cu Camara's job involves diving in the city's sewage system to clear blockages and repair infrastructure, on an average of four times a month, for about 30 minutes to six hours depending on the amount of work needed. Cu Camara, who started working as a sewer diver 30 years ago, uses a diving suit and helmet that weigh more than 40 kg to protect him during his dives. During his working experience, he has found dead humans, horses, weapons and car parts among other things. Mexico City has a drainage system which measures more than 7,456 miles (12,014 km) long.

Flushers Tim Henderson (L) and Stan Cheeseman pose for a photograph with land surveyor Neil Lloyd (R) in the Thames Water Fleet sewer, a Victorian sewer system designed by Joseph Bazalgette, beneath the streets of London March 13, 2013. After heavy rainfall, raw sewage gushes into the River Thames from a network of dank sewers beneath the streets of London. A Victorian-era problem that has never been fixed, the cobweb-laced tunnels just metres from a new railway station at Blackfriars underscore Britain's infrastructure backlog. The need for a new "super sewer" for Europe's financial capital was identified as far back as 1989 but privatised utility Thames Water, lacked government funding and had more pressing priorities such as cleaner drinking water.

With unrivalled funds and powers of incumbency, analysts say Nigeria's People's Democratic Party should coast to victory in elections that began in Africa's most populous nation on Saturday. But endemic corruption, failure to deliver basic services and deteriorating security have boosted the chances of the opposition in many states. REUTERS/Finbarr O'Reilly (NIGERIA)

Standing in a taped-off danger area, a woman uses a public phone, as heavy surf pounds a shorefront near Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro, May 21. Towering waves, whipped up by unseasonably early winter weather, pounded Rio's celebrated beaches, which had already been declared no-swim zones because of raw sewage being dumped into the surf from a pipeline leak. Authorities said that the worst was yet to come, as an Atlantic storm forced a cold front through the area.

SUNBATHERS STOP ALONG ROCKY SHORELINE AT IPANEMA BEACH IN RIO AFTER A BIG STORM.
With the Two Brothers mountains as a backdrop (far L) sunbathers pause to view the rocky shoreline along the boardwalk at Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro April 20, after heavy waves washed away tons of sand. Raging surf, whipped up unseasonably by the La Nina weather phenomenon, ripped through world-famous Ipanema beach, punching a crater in the boardwalk and exposing sewage pipes. The area has been declared a no-swim zone because of raw sewage being dumped into the surf as the result of a leak in a pipeline which was being repaired. A city environment official said the churning breakers may help clean the seawater, but may have also spread contamination further.

SURFER HEADS TOWARD ROCKY SHORELINE AFTER WAVES TORE UP IPANEMA BEACH.
A surfer heads toward a rocky shoreline along Ipanema beach in Rio de Janeiro April 20, after heavy waves washed away tons of sand. Raging surf, whipped up unseasonably by the La Nina weather phenomenon, ripped through the world-famous Ipanema beach, punching a crater in the boardwalk and exposing sewage pipes. While the area has been declared a no-swim zone because of raw sewage being dumped into the surf as the result of a leak in a pipeline which was being repaired, the big waves have attracted dozens of surfers. A city environment official said the churning breakers may help clean the seawater, but may have also spread contamination further.
