China Dead Fish
In this photo taken Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, workers dispose of dead fish found near the outlet of the Ta'ertou pumping station along Fuhe river's Dongxihu section in Wuhan in central China's Hubei province. Authorities scooped up around 100,000 kilograms (220,000 pounds) of dead fish they say were poisoned by ammonia from a chemical plant, environmental officials and state media said Wednesday, Sept 4, 2013, in a reminder of the pollution plaguing the country. Inadequate controls on industry and lax enforcement of existing standards have worsened China's pollution problem, stemming from three decades of breakneck economic growth. (AP Photo) CHINA OUT
