Photo of the Day

Associated Press
In this Sept. 19, 2014 photo, a counternarcotics officer explains to the press the two weeks campaign to eradicate clandestine airstrips at the Mazamari counternarcotics military base in the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro River Valleys, or VRAEM, the world's No. 1 coca-growing region, in Junin, Peru. The dynamiting of craters by Peruvian security forces into clandestine airstrips in the VRAEM cuts into profits but hardly discourages cocaine traffickers who net tens of thousands of dollars with each flight.
