A man rinses soot from his face at the scene of a gas pipeline explosion near Nigeria's commercial capital Lagos December 26, 2006. Up to 500 people were burned alive on Tuesday when fuel from a vandalised pipeline exploded in Nigeria's largest city, Lagos, emergency workers said. Hundreds of residents of the Abule Egba district went to scoop fuel using plastic containers after thieves punctured the underground pipeline overnight to siphon fuel into a road tanker, locals said.

The October 8 earthquake was most destructive to those parts of Indian and Pakistani Kashmir and Pakistan's northwest frontier that are both breathtakingly beautiful and not easy to access. The mountains are a problem, but so is the fact that India and Pakistan are at a tense stand-off over disputed Kashmir and Islamic militants are known to be active in the area, which makes parts of the region restricted to ordinary traffic.

An indigenous Miskito man carries the roof of his house, damaged by Hurricane Felix, in the small town of Krukira on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua September 6, 2007. Soldiers searched for more bodies on Thursday after Hurricane Felix killed 38 people in Nicaragua, while 52 members of a group of Miskito Indians washed ashore alive in neighboring Honduras. Dozens were still missing after Felix tore into Nicaragua's swampy Caribbean coast late on Tuesday, destroying thousands of flimsy homes and making tracks through barely developed jungle areas even less passable than normal.
