SOWETO CHILD WAITS NEXT TO FAMILY BELONGINGS DURING EVICTION.
A Soweto child waits next to family belongings after thousands of poor
families were forcibly evicted from their makeshift homes in Soweto
west of Johannesburg January 7,2002. Armed police protected private
workers who demolished shacks where about 2,000 families had lived
since 1991, after Soweto residents complained the squatters were
fanning crime in the township, once the heartland of the anti-apartheid
struggle. REUTERS/ Juda Ngwenya
