Johannesburg, South Africa
A suspected illegal miner (C) is questioned by police after he emerged from underground at Johannesburg's oldest gold mine in Langlaagte, South Africa. Scores of illegal miners die each year in the labyrinth of tunnels that stretch beneath the streets of Johannesburg and beyond, although police and the government admit they have no idea of the precise toll.
