This Week in Pictures: Nov. 14-20
The world reeled from deadly attacks in Paris that killed at least 129 people last week. In the wake of the coordinated attacks, French President Francois Hollande declared a state of emergency and police conducted a late-night raid in a Parisian suburb, killing one of the sought-after suspects. A woman detonated a suicide vest, killing herself during the raid. After a Syrian passport was found at the site of one of the attacks, heated debates erupted in Europe and the U.S. about how to handle the massive influx of refugees from war-torn countries, including Syria.
Violence erupted again in Tel Aviv and the West Bank, where five people were killed on Thursday in a resurgence of violence after days of relative calm. In Manila, student protesters clashed with police ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. And supporters of the Kosovo opposition parties clashed with police in Pristina, where they attacked government buildings over agreements made with Serbia.
In Mali, gunmen stormed a Radisson hotel in the country’s capital, Bamako, taking over 100 hostages and killing three as of Friday morning.
