In this Saturday, July 12, 2014 photo, a migrant girl on her way to the U.S. border, waits for a freight train to depart in Ixtepec, Mexico. Judging by the dramatic increase in the number of minors apprehended in the United States in recent months, it seems the human smuggling business from Central America is booming. The vast majority of migrants who enter the U.S. illegally do so with the help of a network of smugglers known as “coyotes,” so named for the scavengers that prowl the border. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)The beginning of the end came for the world's tallest slum last week when Venezuelan officials began evicting thousands of squatters from a haphazard community inside a half-built Caracas skyscraper. Residents boarded buses for government-provided apartments in the town of Cua, 23 miles (37 kilometers) south of Caracas.

A dinghy ferries people to fishing boats at a port in the city of Dongfang on the western side of China's palm-fringed island province of HainanBy John Ruwitch TANMEN China (Reuters) - On China's southern Hainan island, a fishing boat captain shows a Reuters reporter around his aging vessel. He has one high-tech piece of kit, however: a satellite navigation system that gives him a direct link to the Chinese coastguard should he run into bad weather or a Philippine or Vietnamese patrol ship when he's fishing in the disputed South China Sea. By the end of last year, China's homegrown Beidou satellite system had been installed on more than 50,000 Chinese fishing boats, according to official media. On Hainan, China's gateway to the South China Sea, boat captains have paid no more than 10 percent of the cost.
