    Attorney Karen Tumlin, who is representing The American Civil Liberties Union against Arizona's controversial Senate Bill 1070 immigration, law speaks to reporters outside the U.S. District Court in Phoenix July 22, 2010. The ACLU filed suit against The State of Arizona and SB 1070. The SB1070 law, currently being challenged by the U.S. Department of Justice at the court to prevent it from going into effect on July 29, would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

    A cyclist rides past Kondo farm in Eldoret 400km (248 miles) west of the capital Nairobi April 27, 2010. As Kenyans prepare to vote in a referendum on constitutional reform in August, many remain haunted by the tribal bloodletting that convulsed east Africa's largest economy in early 2008. The new constitution, seen as a crucial step in healing the ethnic divisions that plague Kenyan politics, would curb the president's sweeping powers and strengthen civil liberties ahead of the next presidential election in 2012.
