Brazil Dam Bursts

A girl rests on a mattresses inside a sports arena after residents were displaced by dams that burst in Mariana, Minas Gerais state, Brazil, Friday, Nov. 6, 2015. The rupture of two dams at an iron ore mine unleashed a mix of water and mining residue on a village downhill, smothering the enclave of Bento Rodrigues. Only about 10 of the village’s around 200 houses were left standing, and cars and other objects were tossed by what survivors described as an eruption of mud. The mine operator Samarco is jointly owned by the Brazilian mining company Vale and Australia’s BHP Billiton. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
