SHILAKAY, IRAQ: Syrian smugglers count their money in a house on the Iraqi side of the border. Due to the recent conflict in Syria there is a gasoline shortage in the country. Syrian smugglers purchase gasoline in Iraq and smuggle it into Syria for a profit of about $0.40 per liter. Smugglers carry between 10 and 30 liters per person on the 7 hour roundtrip journey that often takes them through frozen mud and snow. Photo by Aram Karim/Metrography
