New Year's safety

Members of the Philippine National Police (PNP) hold up their firearms with the muzzles taped shut in Manila on December 29, 2012 to prevent any stray gunfire that has plagued the country every New Year's Day. The taping is supposed to ensure that any policeman who fires his gun into the air on New Year's eve will be discovered, the national police chief said. AFP PHOTO / NOEL CELISNOEL
