Photo of the Day

The Feb. 9, 2013 photo shows a little colony of Finnish-built wooden houses in the government district in Warsaw, Poland. Some have their windows boarded up as the city prepares to demolish them. The homes, erected as temporary housing in the destroyed capital just after World War II, have dwindled in number over the years from 90 to about 25. Now the surviving structures have become a point of contention between their inhabitants and a city government keen on tearing them down to make way for new developments. Now it seems about five might be saved due to the intervention of a new Finnish ambassador. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski)
