Peru Mining Ghost Town Photo Essay

In this May 22, 2014 photo, a karaoke bar sits empty in Huepetuhe in the Madre de Dios region of Peru. Mayor Marco Ortega estimates more than 22,000 people have left Huepetuhe since the government halted gasoline shipments in April and sent troops to destroy heavy machinery used in mining that it deemed illegal. He says only about 3,000 townspeople remain. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd)
