Workers from Indian conglomerate Essar Group construct a new port in Sittwe May 19, 2012. In northwest Myanmar, where the Kaladan River flows out into the Bay of Bengal, the two giant arms of a half-built wharf enfold the estuarine mud with steel and concrete. Their embrace is fraternal — Myanmar’s giant neighbor India is funding this new port in Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine State — but also strategic. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
