Some 37 people have been killed and more than 3,200 people have so far been taken ill with the E.coli strain, about a quarter of them developing a complication called haemolytic uraemic syndrome, which affects the blood, kidneys and nervous system. German health authorities have linked the EHEC bacteria (enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli) epidemic to contaminated bean sprouts and shoots from a German organic farm sold to consumers and restaurants across the country for eating in salads.

In Waterworks and many similar settlements across South Africa, the biggest issue for municipal elections on May 18 is the unfulfilled dream of African National Congress rule. Picture taken May 9.

Copper, zinc, and lead minerals being processed into concentrates float in giant refining tubs at the Cerro Lindo mine of Peruvian mining company Milpo near Chincha February 19, 2008. Fresh water is an increasingly scarce resource in Peru, where most of the population lives along the desert coast. Rivers can be erratic and the glaciers in the Andes are melting because of global warming. Milpo has installed Peru's first water desalinization plant, which takes water out of the Pacific Ocean and then pumps it up 6,000 feet into the Andes, where the purified water runs through Milpo's sprawling new Cerro Lindo mine and provides water to the mining town's 700 workers, who mine copper, zinc, and lead.
