An Iraqi Shi'ite girl watches television inside her house in the Al-Fdhiliya district, eastern Baghdad May 3, 2014. Iraq is now gripped by its worst violence since the heights of its 2005-2008 sectarian war, and Sunni Islamist insurgents who target Shi'ites have been regaining ground in the country over the past year. But despite the instability, daily life continues in poor Shi'ite neighbourhoods of Baghdad such as Al-Fdhiliya and Sadr City - a sprawling slum marred by poor infrastructure and overcrowding.

A child looks out from the window of his home painted with graffiti by members of OPNI, in reference to the 2014 World Cup, in the Vila Flavia slum of Sao Paulo May 28, 2014. The OPNI , a Portuguese acronym which means "Unidentified Graffiti Artists", was formed in 1997 as a means of transforming the streets in the slums into an open-air gallery where the group could express their gripes while also denouncing what they perceive as social injustice. Graffiti artists in Sao Paulo are using their art to take jabs at the establishment they believe have engaged in gross overspending in preparation for this year's World Cup in Brazil.

Women are reflected as they look at a shop window in the commercial Ermou Street in central Athens May 30, 2014. Greek retail sales by volume fell 0.8 percent in March compared to the same month last year,statistics service ELSTAT said on Friday. The reading had risen at a revised annual pace of 0.9 percent in February, more than previously estimated. Hit by the country's deep recession and record unemployment, retail sales declined by about 40 percent in 2009-2013 as a result of austerity policies imposed under the terms of its international bailout.
