Dhaka 2000
Nasrin Sultana Dulali worked as a nurse in a private clinic. She refused the advances of ward assistant Haider, who was later sacked for misconduct. After work one evening, Dulali had acid thrown at her. People alerted by Dulali's screams said they caught Haider red-handed. They tied him to a lamppost, beat him and handed him over to police. Haider was apparently burnt by his own acid when throwing it. He confessed to the photographer, but later denied involvement to the police.

An African penguin soaked in bunker oil, attempts in vian to rid himself of the oil by preening.

Over 40 per cent of the African penguin population lives on nearby Robben and Dassen islands. Around 12,000 volunteers from across the world joined in a rescue mission. By the end of the operation, nearly all the affected birds had been returned to the wild.

Over 70 percent of the inhabitants of some coastal villages in Aceh lost their lives as a result of the tsunami.
