Stuntman Akis Andreou, 38, balances on a motorcycle with the engine running, outside the "Wall of Death", a barrel-shaped wooden structure where he performs acrobatics in the village of Mandoudi, northeast of Athens September 26, 2013. Andreou has been performing stunts since he was 17 and in 2006 set up the Wall of Death, a narrow wooden barrel 5.5 metres high and 9 meters wide. Andreou, one of the few remaining performers of such motorcycle stunts in Greece and one of only two owners of these barrels, does other odd jobs to earn a living during winter, when the Wall is closed due to weather conditions.

A university student runs away from tear gas in front of a dormitory, during a protest against higher enrolment fees, at Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar, April 9, 2013. Despite increasingly high demand in Africa for skills in manufacturing, engineering, agriculture, retail and hospitality, graduates in these fields were scarce. Once the top institution in West Africa, Cheikh Anta Diop University is slowly introducing reforms despite a lack of financial resources and crippling strikes by students and lecturers over poor working conditions, often ending in clashes with police. It launched a civil engineering course this year, partnering with firms such as France's Eiffage, the curriculum structured jointly by company executives and lecturers. But Saliou Ndiaye, rector of Cheikh Anta Diop University, said applying the reforms across the sprawling university will take time, with 65,500 students crowded into facilities built for just 5,000.

Nissan Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn speaks to the media as he visits the company's Iwaki factory in Iwaki, about 50km (31 miles) from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima prefecture May 17, 2011. Employees at Nissan Motor Co are working hard to restore quake-hit production at Japan's No.2 automaker to full levels before its October target, although such an early recovery may be hard to achieve, Ghosn said on Tuesday. The Iwaki factory, which builds 2.5 to 3.7-liter engines for the Fuga, Murano, Infiniti M, and other models, marked its return to full production capacity on Tuesday after suffering damage to its equipment and structure from the magnitude-9.0 earthquake on March 11.

More than 200 rescue workers rushed to the scene in the south of the city after the collapse of the multi-storey building, which German media said may have been sparked by work on an underground train line. At least one person was injured and possibly others are trapped inside, a Cologne police spokesman said, adding the cause for the collapse was still unclear. In background is Cologne Cathedral.
