Why are people involved in the rescue effort in Mexico raising their fists? Emergency workers racing against the clock to reach survivors after Tuesday's earthquake do it to appeal for silence.

The hashtag is being spread on social media to help more people understand when they see the gesture. #mexico #mexicocity #earthquake #disaster

These 100 pick-up trucks once belonged to people smugglers. They were used to drive 50 migrants at a time, all destined for Europe, through the dangerous Nigerien desert to the Libyan border. In a @bbcpanorama investigation of 'Africa’s Billion Dollar Migrant Trade', reporter @benjaminzand gained access to these vehicles. In them, he finds ID cards belonging to migrants who had travelled from countries across Africa to be here - the desert city of Agadez in Niger - in order to be smuggled to Europe.

A strong earthquake has struck central Mexico, killing more than 200 people and toppling dozens of buildings in the capital, Mexico City. President Enrique Peña Nieto said more than 20 children had died and 30 were missing after a school collapsed. The 7.1 magnitude quake also caused major damage in neighbouring states. The tremor struck shortly after many people had taken part in an earthquake drill, exactly 32 years after a quake killed thousands in Mexico City. #mexico #mexicocity #earthquake #disaster

This koala was found clinging to the axle of a four-wheel drive in Australia. It's thought the female crawled under the vehicle's wheel arch while it was parked in the hills near Adelaide. The driver only discovered the hitchhiker after making a 16km (10-mile) journey. Rescuers had to remove the wheel to free the koala. It has now recovered from its ordeal and has been released back into the wild. #koala #hitchhiker #adelaide #australia #animals #lucky

How does this make you feel? Wildlife photographer @justinhofman spotted this little guy floating around in the waters of Indonesia. We reached out to Justin to ask about his photo which has since gone viral. "At first I was so happy to find this cute sea horse all alone but as the tide changed, sea grass and debris started to drift over the reef - and plastic, trash and sewage along with it. The white blobs you see in the background are actually plastic bags. As the whole thing unfolded, I knew it was an important scene that had to be documented. It was frustrating, disgusting and sad but I had to shoot it." The photo is also part of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest - on show at the Natural History Museum in London. #wpy53 #photography #wildlife #seacreature #seahorse #earbud #plasticbags #plastic #wildlifephotography #conservation @eyosexpeditions @nhm_wpy @sea_legacy
