    A child waits to unload drums of diesel at a jetty in the Niger Delta where illicitly refined fuel is sold on the black market to local filling stations. In many riverine communities throughout the Delta, the entire local economy revolves around the illicit diesel trade, and young children often work at the unloading docks rather than going to school. Series Name: Niger Delta: The Water of My Land Series Description: Fires from hundreds of illicit fuel refineries burn every night throughout the Niger Delta. Concealed deep within mangrove swamps and raffia forests, men work by flashlight, manually tossing stolen crude oil into burning pits to keep the refining process going. Flames explode momentarily then recede into darkness. Set against the mass disparities of Nigeriaís oil industry, the Niger Delta has witnessed an ongoing conflict between armed groups seeking access to the countryís oil wealth and the Nigerian security forces. Despite a 2009 amnesty which saw several thousand militant fighters submit weapons in exchange for cash, little effort has been made to address the pollution, corruption, and political sponsorship of armed groups, which drive the underlying violence and endemic poverty in what is Africaís largest oil producing region and fifth largest supplier of crude to the United States.
