Shoeshiners attend to customers along a street in Santiago de Cuba September 19, 2015. The Obama administration announced wide-ranging new rules on Friday to ease trade, travel and investment restrictions with Cuba, the latest effort to chip away at the long-standing U.S. economic embargo amid a diplomatic thaw between the two former Cold War foes. The announcement came just as Pope Francis, who played an instrumental role in the diplomatic opening late last year, prepares to visit Cuba this weekend before heading to the United States next week. The Vatican has long condemned the embargo against Cuba. REUTERS/Andres Martinez Casares TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

A boy working as a shoe shiner is seen in La Paz, January 8, 2014. Bolivia's national legislature is currently debating a new law which would make it illegal for children to start working before the age of 14, though an exception would be incorporated, allowing 12 and 13-year-olds to work with special permission. On Wednesday, representatives from Bolivia's Union of Child and Adolescent Workers (UNATsBO) entered this debate, opposing any legally imposed age limits. According to a 2008 study on child labour, conducted by the Bolivian National Institute of Statistics, 28 percent of the country's population between 5 and 17 years old is involved in "labour activities".

Although Turkey still trades with Syria, it is seeking alternative transport routes to export goods to other countries in the Middle East, which it estimates will cost Syria over $100 million in transport fees annually. Some 60,000 Syrians used to cross the border monthly, providing a contribution of around $1 billion a year to Gaziantep and the economy of the border region.
