This Week in Pictures: Nov. 15-21
Old man winter made a thundering entrance this week in the Buffalo, New York, region, dumping more than seven feet of snow and leading to the death of 13 people by Friday. While other parts of the country didn’t experience historic snowfalls like upstate New York, all 50 states had temperatures of freezing or below on Tuesday — even Hawaii.
A deadly attack at a synagogue in Jerusalem by two Palestinians resulted in the death of five, three of whom were Americans. The attackers, one armed with a meat cleaver and another with a gun, were shot and killed by police.
In Hong Kong, pro-democracy protesters faced off against riot police again. The latest incident was sparked by the execution of a court order to remove some roadblocks that were part of a pro-democracy occupation campaign.
