Rodrigo Diaz Mejia climbs over a crushed car into what was a second-story apartment felled by the earthquake in the Portales Norte neighborhood of Mexico City on Wednesday. The 38-year-old mechanic who lives nearby said he ran to help rescue people trapped atop the buildings roofs on the day of the quake, Sept. 19, and has since been making risky trips into the ruptured structures to retrieve valuable possessions for displaced residents.
Recovery has been slow since the quake. The Los Angeles Times reported last week that thousands left homeless by the disaster still have nowhere to go. About 40 buildings collapsed in the quake but as many as 1,000 are so badly damaged they could be deemed uninhabitable.

Chinese President Xi Jinping bows before delivering a speech at the opening ceremony of the 19th Party Congress held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, on Wednesday.
Xi proclaimed his nation’s prospects as bright but made a rare acknowledgment of severe economic challenges as he opened the ruling Communist Party’s twice-a-decade national congress. Among the grave issues Xi said were insufficiently addressed are a widening income gap and problems in employment, education, medical care and other areas.
Xi wields undisputed power and is expected to get a second five-year term as party leader at the gathering.

A defaced election poster of Sebastian Kurz, of the conservative Austrian People’s Party stands in front of the parliament in Vienna, Austria, on Monday.
