An elite police commando unit waited hours for transport from Nairobi, Kenya, to Garissa, where Al-Shabaab terrorists had taken over a university on April 2, according to one of the commandos who participated in the response operation.

About 100 families live inside the Boragaon landfill in Guwahati, India. Every day, they search the area for treasure â€” a tiny scrap of metal, a bit of plastic, maybe a bone. They use large hooks to sort through the garbage, which sometimes reaches two or three stories high. But photographer Timothy Bouldry says the people who live at the landfill are actually "content. They are not jaded by modern civilization."
