Indonesian civil service police members demolish a church at the Siompin village in Aceh Singkil, Aceh province, October 19, 2015. When a mob of Muslims swooped on a little church deep in rural Aceh in Indonesia this month, the local police were nowhere to be seen, although they had received warnings of a possible attack. In the wake of the attack, authorities gave in to the demands of the hardline Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) group, and used sledgehammers and axes to demolish 10 other churches in the area that lacked proper permits. The raid, and the aftermath, reflect an increasingly militant attitude towards other faiths in Aceh, where Sharia law now requires non-Muslims to abide by rules forbidding extra-martial sex, homosexual relationships and public displays of affection.

A protester waves a Turkish flag printed with a portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, on a road which leads to a courthouse during a demonstration in Ankara October 9, 2013. Turkey's appeals court upheld convictions on Wednesday of top retired military officers for leading a plot to overthrow Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's government a decade ago in a case underlining civilian dominance over a once all-powerful army. The court overturned convictions of dozens of less prominent defendants among more than 300 officers sentenced last September in the "Sledgehammer" conspiracy, said to have included plans to bomb mosques in Istanbul to pave the way for an army takeover.

A 50-year-old grave digger who only wants to be identified as Mr Sim (L) breaks a tombstone with his sledgehammer as he exhumes a grave with his boss Mr Leung, 53, at Bukit Brown Cemetery in Singapore November 27, 2012. Starting early next year, workers with heavy machinery will begin constructing an eight-lane highway across the small country's oldest surviving major cemetery, overriding the objections of nature lovers and heritage buffs. Singapore, with its 5.3 million people crammed onto an island less than half the size of London, is already more densely populated than rival Asian business centre Hong Kong, making permanent burial space unfeasible.

Construction workers start demolishing the interiors of a foreclosed home in Los Angeles, California May 14, 2012. At the height of the U.S. housing bubble, the practice of "flipping" homes - buying them for cheap, fixing them up and reselling them for a quick profit - was popular enough to inspire its own TV show. The housing crash that began about five years ago put the brakes on it, but it is now re-emerging in another form, with some investors selecting foreclosed homes in cities like Los Angeles and Phoenix for flipping.
