Photo of the Day

In this photo taken Saturday, May 18, 2013, men walk past an abandoned illegal refinery at the creeks of Bayelsa, Nigeria. The first drops of crude float in the languid muddy currents of Nigeria's oil-rich southern delta, then slowly grow into the splatter of massive crime scene. Oil thefts, long a problem in the Niger Delta, are growing at an ever-faster rate despite government officials and international companies offering increasingly dire warnings about the effect on Nigeria's crude production. Some 200,000 barrels a day representing about 10 percent of Nigeria's production are siphoned off pipelines crisscrossing the region. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
