This Week in Pictures: Apr. 19-Apr. 25
This week kicked off with a festive start, as Catholics around the world celebrated Easter Sunday. But the mood grew somber as recovery efforts at the Sewol ferry in South Korea led to a spike in victims who were found once conditions allowed divers better access to the areas where many high school students had been trapped. The captain of the ship, one of the first off the sinking vessel, was arrested along with several other crew members. Family members of the 13 Sherpas killed in the deadliest accident in the history of the Mount Everest mourned their lost ones.
Tensions continued to escalate in eastern Ukraine. Protests continued in Caracas, Venezuela, and clashes broke out in Bahrain.
On a more positive note, the first American since 1983 won the Boston Marathon on Monday, one year after the deadly bombing that killed three people and injured many more. Boston came out strong, both in the number of runners who participated, and in the hundreds of thousands of supports who came out to cheer them on.
