This Week in Pictures: April 23-29
This week, Republican presidential candidate and Sen. Ted Cruz named the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Carly Fiorina as his running mate, and rival Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gave an uncharacteristically scripted foreign policy speech. On Tuesday, five states – Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island – held their primary elections, culminating in a particularly successful night for Trump, who swept all five states on the Republican side, and Hillary Clinton, who won four out of the five states for the Democrats.
Overseas, the migrant crisis continued across Europe. In Athens, the Olympic Torch, which will burn in Rio de Janeiro this August during the Olympic Games, was handed off to Brazil. In Mexico, protests were held over the handling of evidence surrounding the 43 students missing since 2014. Vice President Joe Biden made a surprise visit to Iraq, and the suspect in last year’s Paris terror attacks was charged with terrorist murders, using bombs and weapons and participation in a terror organization, according to his lawyer. In an airstrike on a hospital affiliated with Doctors Without Borders in Aleppo, Syria, at least 50 people were killed, including doctors, children, and hospital staff members.
