CHINA-POLITICS-POVERTY

This photo taken on September 28, 2017 shows women making traditional musical instruments in a village in Lankao in China's central Henan province. When President Xi Jinping last came to central China's Lankao county, it was famous for two things: poverty and the government official who reputedly died trying to end it. Three years later, the hardscrabble area has undergone a Cinderella-like transformation, waltzing across the national poverty line just in time for the Communist Party's twice-a-decade national congress on October 18. / AFP PHOTO / Greg Baker / TO GO WITH China-politics-poverty, FOCUS by Ben DOOLEY (Photo credit should read GREG BAKER/AFP via Getty Images)
