Photo of the Day

In this photo taken Saturday, May 18, 2013, an Unidentified man ride a speed boat with oil containers 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)
