Thousands of families living near the lake, which is currently half-filled with sand, are facing eviction after the government in 2007 awarded the land to a local real estate developer, Shukaku Inc., for private development.

The firm has been filling in the lake with sand, causing frequent floods at the residents' homes.

Pictures in the News | Sept. 30, 2010

Film legend Tony Curtis died today. We begin Thursday’s Pictures in the News with a floral tribute at the actor’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The images that follow are an eclectic mix of angels, mimes, models, a cheese expert and a fisherman. We also have police clashing with people protesting a disputed railway station project in Stuttgart, Germany; wig-wearing spectators at the Ryder Cup in Wales, as well as an image of the opening ceremony; and three-time Tour de France champion Alberto Contador facing the media after he was suspended for failing a drug test.

We see a Fiat 500 with 1,000 faces at the Paris auto show; the view from the tallest free-standing crane in Slovenia; and we’re at the incineration of confiscated drugs in Mexico.

Not to mention being over the moon in the South of France.
