A girl cries after crossing Greece's border into Macedonia near Gevgelija, Macedonia, August 22, 2015. Thousands of rain-soaked migrants stormed across Macedonia’s border on Saturday as police lobbed stun grenades and beat them with batons, struggling to enforce a decree to stem their flow through the Balkans to western Europe. Security forces managed to contain hundreds in no-man’s land. But several thousand others – many of them Syrian refugees - tore through muddy fields to Macedonian territory after days spent in the open without access to shelter, food or water.

A grouse sits on Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's head as he visits a facility of the Forest and Water Management Ministry in Rize, Turkey, August 14, 2015. Turkey's nationalist opposition made clear on Friday it would not roll over and back a minority government, making Erdogan's aim of taking the country to a snap election with the ruling party in control look increasingly difficult. Talks on forming a grand coalition between the AK Party and the main opposition CHP broke down on Thursday, making an autumn election almost inevitable and leaving the ruling party having to turn to the nationalist MHP for support.

A woman looks out of the window as she travels on a train through Macedonia July 31, 2015. Tens of thousands of migrants, mainly from the Middle East and Africa, use the Balkans route to get into the European Union, passing from Greece to Macedonia and Serbia and then to western Europe. After walking across the border into Macedonia to the small local station of Gevgelia, migrants pile onto an overcrowded four-carriage train in sweltering heat, young infants among them, to travel about 200 km north. Their aim: to enter Serbia on foot, another step in their uncertain search for a better life.

The camera rolls as actors dressed as historical Chinese soldiers act as though they have been hit by artillery, during filming of "The Last Prince" television series on location near Hengdian World Studios near Hengdian July 24, 2015. Mass battle scenes that involve special effects and more than a hundred actors and crew are often shot in one take. This makes it possible for the well-organised team to satisfy the huge appetite for productions about the war against Japan. Director Li Xiaoqiang said the series is about a Qing Dynasty prince, who joined the Chinese nationalist army after suffering family misfortune. "After he learnt more about the Communist Party, the prince began to understand what real revolution and the anti-Japanese war meant, and turned to the Communist Party to fight Japan", the director added. According to local media, more than 10 new movies, 12 TV dramas, 20 documentaries and 183 war-themed stage performances will be released in China to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two.

According to information from China’s Commission of Inquiry into the Facts of Comfort Women being Victims, which is based on her own statement during the commission's research, Xiantu was abducted by Japanese soldiers aged 16 and was forced to serve as a "comfort woman" for over 20 days during World War Two.

A Picture And Its Story: Migration: Paths to Europe
Migrants run after crossing a fence as they attempt to access the Channel Tunnel in Frethun, near Calais, France, August 4, 2015. The Mediterranean has become the world's most deadly border zone for migrants. More than 2,000 migrants and refugees have died so far this year in attempts to reach Europe by boat, the International Organization for Migration said last week. The Turkey-Greece route has resurfaced these summer months as a thriving business for smugglers profiting from the stream of people fleeing war and poverty. Reuters photographers on assignment in France, Greece, Hungary and Malta capture the drama of migrants on the move.Juan Medina: "Many people there come from Afghanistan or Sudan. They live in a shantytown called 'The Jungle' and despite their living conditions, they say, 'At least we're safe from dying"'. But they are not."
