Patients drink herbal tea inside a tent used as a sauna as they relax after their sand bath in Siwa, Egypt, August 17, 2015. In the searing heat of summer in western Egypt, at the hottest time of the day, sufferers of rheumatism, joint pain, infertility or impotence lie buried neck-deep in the sand of Siwa near Dakrour Mountain. Locals say taking a sand bath is a natural therapy with powers to cure many medical conditions. Patients relax in the shade before treatment, which includes massages by the feet of health workers after they submerge their patients up to their neck in the desert. Patients drink mint tea in tents following the treatment. REUTERS/Asmaa Waguih PICTURE 17 OF 24 FOR WIDER IMAGE STORY "THE HOT SAND BATHS OF SIWA". SEARCH "ASMAA SIWA" FOR ALL IMAGES

Palestinian boy Mohammed Wahdan, whom medics said was wounded in Israeli shelling, is held by his aunt as he receives psychological care at Shifa hospital in Gaza City August 14, 2014. In a ward at Shifa, Gaza's largest hospital, child therapist Rabeea Hamouda is trying to elicit a response from two small brothers, Omar and Mohammed, aged three and 18 months, hoping for some words or perhaps a smile. For seven straight minutes the children, peppered with burns and shrapnel wounds sustained in Israeli shelling that hit their home in north Gaza, stare at him blankly, emotionless. Omar and Mohammed are just two of the 400,000 Gazan children the United Nations estimates are in need of psychological care as a result of not just the latest war in the territory but the three previous conflicts fought with Israel since 2006. The most recent conflagration has been the deadliest, with 1,945 Palestinians killed, many of them civilians and including an estimated 457 children. On the other side of the border, some 64 Israeli soldiers and three civilians have been killed. Picture taken August 14, 2014. REUTERS/Mohammed Salem (GAZA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST HEALTH)

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman for the Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry, said 1,000 patients a month required medical care in Egypt and in other countries.

A container of bear-bile powder for sale is pictured in a new Guizhentang shop in Beijing February 16, 2011. The Chinese company that extracts bile from captive bears for traditional medicines has sparked fury on the Internet from bloggers accusing it of animal cruelty after news emerged that it hopes to list on the stock market. Guizhentang Pharmaceuticals Company, which makes bile extract using captive Asiatic black bears, has approached authorities in its home Fujian province to apply to make an initial public offering, an official told Reuters on Wednesday. The Chinese characters read, "The Powder of Bear Bile ". REUTERS/Jason Lee (CHINA - Tags: BUSINESS ANIMALS)
