    In this picture taken May 14, 2013 Mufti Tomasz Miskiewicz, Poland’s top Muslim leader, gestures during an interview with The Associated Press in Warsaw. Miskiewicz is urging Polish lawmakers to pass a law that would re-legalize the practice of Islamic and Jewish religious slaughter, a practice that has been banned since January. The ban came after a campaign by animal rights groups, which consider it cruel because it involves a cut to the throat of a conscious animal, with no pre-stunning to make the animal unconscious. But the kosher and halal industry is also a big business and the ban is causing losses reaching millions of euros, putting pressure on the government to get the practice reinstated legally.

    In this photo supplied by The New Age newspaper of South Africa and taken Thursday May 2, 2013, guests watch as the bridal couple, Vega Gupta, centre right, and Aakash Jahajgarhia, are pulled across a pool on a float at Sun City's Palace of the Lost City, South Africa, during their wedding ceremony. The self-proclaimed "wedding of the century" has become a public relations disaster for the government since a private jet appears to have received diplomatic courtesies, allegedly bypassing customs procedures, when the jet landed the wedding party at the military Waterkloof Air Force Base near Pretoria, South Africa. The jet landed Tuesday angering many South Africans who see the scandal as a case of cronyism linking big business and government and igniting accusations that security laws were breached.

    Marcelo Freixo (L), a 45-year-old state assemblyman and Rio's Mayor candidate speaks during a rally campaign in Rio de Janeiro August 24, 2012. To many in this coastal metropolis, Rio de Janeiro has never had it so good. After decades of decay, crippling crime rates, and a loss of big business to rival Sao Paulo, Rio is on the rise. A recent boom in Brazil's economy, the discovery of massive offshore oilfields nearby, and Rio's hosting of the World Cup and Olympics later this decade have restored some of the splendor to the tropical city of 6.5 million people. But one local official is tired of the exuberance. Freixo, a 45-year-old state assemblyman, thinks Rio needs a reminder of all that is wrong -- from uneven development to deep inequality to corruption and organized crime so powerful that, facing death threats, he fled to Europe last year. Now, the schoolteacher turned human-rights activist turned politician hopes his call for a reality check can help him, in October elections, topple the popular mayor who presides over all the preening.

As the oil-rich Gulf economies boom, the hobbies of its wealthy local populations tend to become big business - and nowhere is that more true than for horses, a traditional passion of the region's Bedouin tribes. Dubai, with its large tourist sector and web of international transport links, has emerged as the focus of the horse business in the region.
