The Wider Image: Tel Aviv's Central Bus Station: a grimy commuter hub with a soul
Tamar Lehman, 32, social counsellor for mentally ill young adults, plays an accordion next to books placed inside a cultural center used by "Yung Yidish," a non-profit organisation aiming to preserve Yiddish culture, at the Central Bus Station in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 25, 2019. Lehman comes to the station often to practise dancing and play the accordion. "I felt this building is just like the people I work with - they may appear totally confused within themselves, not understood, bizarre, but the more you learn about the people and their inner structure you slowly become more familiar with their inner world, with all its craziness, and you see the beauty," she said.

Spotlight: Nigeria’s floating school
Structures built on a raft are seen in the Makoko fishing community on the Lagos Lagoon, Nigeria February 29, 2016. In Makoko, a sprawling slum of Nigeria's megacity Lagos, a floating school capable of holding up to a hundred pupils has since November brought free education to the waterways known as the Venice of Lagos. It offers the chance of social mobility for youngsters who, like most of the city's 21 million inhabitants, lack a reliable electricity and water supply and whose water-based way of life is threatened by climate change as well as rapid urbanisation.

A man inspects the last settled dowry of several cows received for his daughter's hand in an arranged marriage, about 80 km (50 miles) from the town of Marigat in Baringo County December 7, 2014. As Pokot tradition dictates, the future husband arrived to her family home with a group of men to collect the girl. The men arrived with the last settled dowry of livestock for the girl's family. In this case it was 20 goats, three camels and 10 cows, given during a period of several weeks. The remaining 10 cows were to be given the morning the girl was taken to her new home by her husband and the rest of the men. The girl was unaware of the marriage arrangements that her father had made. The family said that if they had told her in advance she might have run away from home. In the Pokot tradition, parents give their daughters as wives usually at the beginning of their adolescence. The Pokots have developed social structure and practices that aim to optimise the chance of survival of each household in an often difficult and hostile environment. The girls are ready for marriage after an initiation ceremony marking their passing over into womanhood. Picture taken December 7, 2014. REUTERS/Siegfried Modola (KENYA - Tags: ANIMALS SOCIETY)

According to local media, the five-story building was bombed by Shi'ite Muslim tribesmen known as Houthis during recent fighting against army forces in Amran, and there were no casualties. Yemen's president on Sunday demanded the withdrawal of Shi'ite Muslim tribesmen from the provincial city of Amran captured on July 8, in a stand-off that threatens to intensify turmoil in the Arab country. The Shi'ite Houthis, named after the tribe of their leader, said their fight was against rivals loyal to the Islamist Islah party.

Teacher Rosemary McCallum shows students how to set a table during a session on English dining during the Intensive Etiquette Courses at the Institut Villa Pierrefeu in Glion near Montreux, western Switzerland, October 22, 2013. In their heyday before feminism stirred in the 1960s, European aristocrats sent their daughters to finishing schools in safe, neutral Switzerland to polish their manners and prepare them for married life. About half a dozen such schools once flourished in the French-speaking Alps, but the others have closed as young women have instead chosen to attend university and pursue careers. Now part of the demand for the last surviving school is coming from a very different segment of the population - men. Picture taken October 22, 2013.
