APTOPIX Peru Illegal Mining

In this Wednesday, April 30, 2014 photo, a woman cries in front of police after authorities destroyed her canoe's engine, which partially destroyed her boat, for allegedly transporting machinery used by illegal gold miners at the Punkiri dock in Peru's Madre de Dios region. Illegal mining accounts for about 20 percent of Peru's gold exports, and most miners are poor migrants from the Andean highlands. The government has started cracking down on illegal gold mining since a nationwide ban on illegal mining took effect April 19. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
