Residents retrieve belongings in December after authorities demolished their unauthorized houses in northeastern Delhi, which contains India's most crowded neighborhoods. Some homes are made of a single layer of brick, with extra floors added without support for the weight. Below, narrow streets are lined by buildings jammed together. Experts say a major earthquake is likely to hit the city, but next to nothing has been done to prepare for it, in part because of poverty. (Associated Press)
