Luis Olarte, 38, a shopkeeper waits for clients at a small shop filled with subsidized goods smuggled over from Venezuela in the border town of Puerto Santander, Colombia September 8, 2015. Driven by a deepening economic crisis, smuggling across Venezuela's land and maritime borders - as well as illicit domestic trading - has accelerated to unprecedented levels and is transforming society. Although smuggling has a centuries-old history here, the socialist government's generous subsidies and a currency collapse have given it a dramatic new impetus.

People ride on a motorcycle after buying goods at PDVAL, a state-run grocery store, at El Yagual in the state of Apure November 13, 2014. Some inhabitants of Venezuela's savannah heartlands struggling to survive the national economic crisis have found a novel way to make ends meet - fish-smuggling to Colombia. While contraband of gasoline and medicine has been going on for years, little is known about the burgeoning trade in fresh-water fish by Venezuelans who pile tons onto motorised canoes and traverse dangerous waterways for days into Colombia.

A cameraman watches police burn 1.6 tonnes (1,600 kilograms) of cannabis in a valley southeast of Tirana March 21, 2014. Police began eliminating drugs seized from operations in 2013. According to authorities, the cannabis was seized as it was being transported out of producing areas like Lazarat near the Greek border in the south, being ferried across the Adriatic to Italy hidden in commercial vehicles, or from the rocky coastal area of the Karaburun Peninsula in western Albania's Vlore.

People transport illegally mined coal to be sold in Zivinice near Tuzla February 9, 2014. Under socialist Yugoslavia, Tuzla in northeastern Bosnia was a hub for the metals and chemical industries. Today, the city's industrial zone is a wasteland and home to one in five of Bosnia's 27 percent registered unemployed. Days of unrest that began with a protest by workers from Dita and other idled factories last week in Tuzla have blown the lid on years of simmering post-war discontent. Rioters set fire to government buildings in some of Bosnia's biggest cities - Sarajevo, Tuzla, Zenica and Mostar and several hundred people were injured, most of them police in clashes with protesters.
